All applicants must take the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT), with the exception of University of Louisville School of Dentistry students applying for the Advanced Education Program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. The Dental Admissions Test (DAT) will be considered in lieu of the MCAT for these applicants.
The MCAT should preferably be taken during the second semester of the applicant's junior year, or the summer term immediately thereafter. In no case should it be postponed later than the fall of the year prior to the one in which the applicant intends to enter medical school. The MCAT should not be attempted before the major basic science requirements are completed, and scores only from the past two years are accepted. MCAT information may be obtained from the applicant's premedical advisory personnel or by going online to: http://www.aamc.org/students/mcat/
Note: MCAT registration is only available on-line.
