ADMISSIONS: Important 2016 MCAT Information

September 16, 2015

An important reminder for students thinking of applying to medical school: the American Association for Medical Colleges (AAMC) has released the list of MCAT test dates for 2016. Take a look here.

How does this affect my medical school application for the May 2016 class?

If you’re planning to apply for Ross University School of Medicine’s (RUSM) May 2016 class but have not taken the MCAT yet, these new 2016 MCAT test dates mean that you still have options. The MCAT will be offered on Friday, January 22, and Saturday, January 23. If you take the MCAT on one of these two test dates, you will have enough time to apply, send in your supporting documents, receive your MCAT score, and potentially secure an interview.

What about the September 2016 class? When should I take the MCAT?

The last day you can take the MCAT and qualify for our September 2016 class is Saturday, June 18. However, our admissions colleagues highly encourage applicants to take the MCAT sooner, not later.

“Students hoping to enroll in September 2016 are highly encouraged to take the MCAT as early as January,” says Carey James, associate director of operations, analytics, and admissions. “That way, if you decide to retake the exam to better your score, you’ll still have time to study, retake it, improve your score, and make it in time for September.”

Though taking the MCAT in June is still an option, there is a chance that the September 2016 class will be full by then, James notes.

You can register for the MCAT on the AAMC’s website.
