FAQ

As a private medical school in Texas, we only accept applications via AMCAS.

Applicants who indicate retaking the MCAT exam as posted on the AMCAS will be reviewed once the new score is received, regardless of any prior scored exam. If multiple scores are presented, the most recent will be used. Applicants with more than four exams are not consider for supplemental applications.

Applicants for the entering class of 2024 must have taken the MCAT in 2021, 2022 or 2023.

The minimum threshold established by the Admissions Committee is an MCAT score of 502 (no more than four attempts) and an overall grade point average of 3.2 and a cumulative science GPA of 3.0.

Yes, you can submit the AMCAS application while you wait for the MCAT score; however, we will not begin reviewing the application until a score is received.

An applicant must have completed at least 90 semester hours (or equivalent quarter hours), including at least 30 semester hours (or equivalent quarter hours) of upper division coursework, by the time of matriculation. All coursework must be completed at a fully-accredited college or university in the United States or Canada by the time of matriculation. A bachelor’s degree is not required.

Applicants can apply prior to having all courses completed prior to June 1, 2024; however, any outstanding courses must be completed and graded prior to the start of medical school. The final official transcript with graded coursework must be received no later than June 1 prior to the start of medical school in July. As a reminder, our three required sciences are genetics, physiology and biochemistry.

An applicant must submit at least three letters of recommendation. Individual letters, letter packets containing at least three letters and/or a committee letter with two additional letters will meet our requirement. The School of Medicine accepts letters of recommendation from any author(s) who can speak to your personal and professional readiness for medical school.

Yes, we welcome non-us residents applicants, such as undocumented and DACA students. Non-US resident applicants must meet the requirements listed on our website; including completion of all pre-requisite coursework at an accredited institution in the U.S. or Canada.

Before applying you can email MDAdmissions@tcu.edu to schedule a 30 minute virtual meeting with a member of the Office of Admission. Current applicants are unable to meet with admission staff.

Unfortunately, we are unable to tour all three of our current sites. Our new space is scheduled to open in July 2024. We are only hosting admitted students  on campus during this time.
