FAQ

As a private medical school in Texas, we only accept applicants 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 must submit an MCAT score(s) from within three years from the date of matriculation, for example: applicants for the entering class of 2019 must have taken the MCAT in 2016, 2017 or 2018.

The minimum threshold established by the Admissions Committee is a score at the 40th percentile and an overall grade point average 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; 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 the start of medical school in July.

An applicant must submit at least three letters of recommendation, of which a committee letter will be considered one. The remaining letters are encouraged from those who can attest to professional and personal readiness for medicine. Letters from science faculty are not required. Letters must be received in order to advance in the review process.
