    For schools that accept the MCAT would it still be wise to take the GRE?
    I am applying directly from undergrad and got a 33Q on the MCAT (90th percentile overall), so it's competitive, but I don't know how MPH admissions view the tests..

    I'm applying to Dartmouth, Emory, Jefferson, BU, and UIC (maybes: UC Davis (requires GRE), GWU, Tulane)

    Each school is different, but many will take MCAT in lieu of GRE.

    Emory definitely does. If you do a search in this forum you will find a few threads that address this and perhaps a more comprehensive answer to your question.

    Dartmouth definitely takes the MCAT to replace the GRE. i never took the GRE when i applied, and I got into the program. Good luck!
