Applying to Med School as a Med Scholar
When do I apply?
Spring semester of your sophomore year
What does the application process entail?
- Complete an application to Saint Louis University School of Medicine.
- Request evaluations by the Pre-Health Professions Committee on Evaluations.
- Be interviewed by the Admissions Committee of the School of Medicine.
(The School of Medicine adheres to the guidelines of the Association of American Medical Colleges in regard to the Americans with Disabilities Act. Please refer to "Who is Eligible to Apply" - item 4 Technical Standards for Admission to the School of Medicine.)
When would I find out whether or not I was accepted to medical school?
You may receive a provisional acceptance to the School of Medicine by early summer before your junior year. Students are accepted for the year immediately following completion of undergraduate work.
Please note: If a Medical Scholar who has been accepted into Saint Louis University School of Medicine decides to apply to other medical schools, this early acceptance will be withdrawn. If such a student then wishes to be reconsidered for admission, he or she must follow the regular application process for the School of Medicine.
Do I have to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT)?
At the appropriate time, you will be required to take the MCAT; however, your score does not affect admission. As a Medical Scholar, though, you are expected to achieve your highest possible score on the MCAT.
