Medical school applicants will need to complete an online application through the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). Letters of recommendation must be secured and two of the letters should be from science faculty. The Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) must be taken. Typically, only test scores taken within the last three years will be considered.
