BS/MD Programs: Requirements and Deadlines Update

In case you missed the news, there have been a few recent changes made regarding admissions requirements and deadlines to direct medical programs at a few universities.

Here’s the update:

Temple University has released a separate Health Scholar application, due December 11, 2020. Temple has also extended their Early Action undergraduate program deadline for Fall 2021 applications to November 15.

Applicants to George Washington University’s Seven-Year BA/MD may now apply without test scores.

Rutgers University has extended its joint BA/MD program deadline to November 15.

 University of Pittsburgh’s Guaranteed Admissions Program has also gone test optional. However, students admitted without test scores will have to take the MCAT before matriculating to medical school. Those students admitted with SAT/ACT scores will not be required to take the MCAT before matriculating to medical school.

 Just one more note: For those of you applying to college next year, the Common App will eliminate the optional disciplinary question. And that’s very good news!
