All applicants must take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). The MCAT should preferably be taken during the second semester of the applicant's junior year, or the summer term immediately thereafter.  In no case should it be postponed later than the fall of the year prior to the one in which the applicant intends to enter medical school.  The MCAT should not be attempted before the major basic science requirements are completed. MCAT information may be obtained from the applicant's pre-medical advisory personnel or by going online at the following web address: http://www.aamc.org/students/applying/mcat/.  The ULSOM accepts the most recent score, and will not accept any MCAT scores older than two years old.
