*Members of the faculty and administration of Saint Louis University have been closely monitoring the changes that are planned for the 2015 MCAT.  They are actively seeking and incorporating the guidance of both the American Association of Medical Colleges and the National Association of Advisors for the Health Professions, which are the national organizations spearheading the implementation of the revised exam.  The rigorous pre-med science curriculum that SLU has in place will continue to prepare students for the admission to and success in medical school.  Members of the faculty and administration are working together in order to determine how best to proceed as additional information is provided by AAMC.
