In the last two posts I have mentioned that there are some BS/MD programs that have higher than typical required grades or higher than typical MCAT scores to advance to the medical school. Today I want to identify those programs.
The University of Alabama Birmingham has a 3.5 GPA requirement for math and sciences courses but a 3.6 overall GPA requirement.
The University of Connecticut has an overall GPA requirement of a 3.6 GPA.
George Washington University has an overall GPA requirement of a 3.6 GPA.
The St. Bonaventure/George Washington program also has a science and overall GPA of 3.6.
The University of Central Florida has a 3.75 science and overall GPA requirement.
Washington University in St. Louis has a 3.8 over GPA requirement and a 36 MCAT requirement.
Rosemont/Drexel has a minimum required MCAT score of 31.
The University of Pittsburgh has a GPA requirement of 3.75.
There are some wonderful programs here that I have had many students apply to. But, before applying to these programs, carefully consider the higher requirement to advance to the medical school so that you are making an informed decision.
