American University of Antigua (AUA) College of Medicine believes there is no correlation between MCAT scores and becoming a licensed, successful and caring physician. However, in order to comply with governmental regulations, MCAT scores will be required to matriculate. MCAT scores are not required for admissions.
In accordance, with our holistic, overall approach to evaluating students, AUA does not require the MCAT for admissions.
They are only required for students to matriculate.
Only accepted students who are U.S. citizens, nationals, or eligible permanent residents will be required to submit copies of their scores—listing all attempts. Students can also take the MCAT between the first and second semesters but they must submit a score before the second semester begins. Canadian students and international students do not have to fulfill this requirement.
Applicants are evaluated on multiple criteria, including but not limited to:
• Personal and professional characteristics
• If they can succeed in a rigorous medical education
• Recommendations, GPA, extracurricular activities, personal statement, and other relevant aspects of their application.
