MCAT Policy at Indiana University School of Medicine

The current MCAT will be accepted for those students applying for the medical school class of 2015 and 2016. The 2015 MCAT will be required for students applying to the class of 2017. Plan ahead so that you are covered in case you need to re-apply.

New Resource Available for Pre-Medical Students

The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) has created an online pre-medical guide that discusses issues such as where to find information on MD programs (the MSAR), the MCAT, the online application (AMCAS) and financial aid for medical school. This is a great starting place to learn more about the resources available to you. Check out the AAMC Resources for Pre-Med Students.

New Admissions Requirements Adopted at Indiana University School of Dentistry

The IU School of Dentistry has adopted new admissions requirements for students entering in the dental school class of 2016. The requirements are more competency based and may work better with students in certain majors at Purdue. You need to plan ahead for the option of re-applying if you are currently applying for the class of 2015. It may mean that you need some additional coursework. Read more about the prerequisite changes at Indiana University School Dentistry.

Consider Study Abroad as a Pre-Professional Student

It is possible to study abroad as a pre-professional student, but you need to plan ahead for the timing and for the costs. We will be happy to discuss study abroad as part of your pre-professional preparation. The Study Abroad Office is in Young Hall Room 105. Be aware of their deadlines: February 1st for select summer programs and internships; March 1st for most summer programs and for fall and academic year programs; September 15th for spring semester programs.  Study Abroad at Purdue
