Students will typically ask me what SAT Subject Tests to take and I will advise them on that topic. But remember that not all of the BS/MD programs require Subject Tests. So which BS/MD programs do require SAT Subject Tests?
Here is a list of the BS/MD programs that require SAT Subject Tests:
Florida Atlantic University recommends SAT Subject Tests
University of Rochester strongly encourages SAT Subject Tests
Drexel/Drexel University College of Medicine recommends SAT Subject Tests
Lehigh/Drexel University College of Medicine highly recommends Subject Tests
That’s it. Some of the other programs will consider SAT Subject Tests if submitted but do not require or even recommend them.
I do typical recommend that if possible a student does take several of the SAT Subject Tests so that they can consider these listed programs as options. But not having SAT Subject Tests still allows you to apply to most of the available BS/MD programs.
However, computers can be expensive — online colleges that offer laptops with tuition do so to help offset that cost. Some even provide free iPads to new freshmen enrolled in four-year programs.
