This is from the combined BS/MD program website and it roughly translates to 75 or more on LizzyM. However, 3.8 from WUSTL is not an easy GPA and mostly likely their graduates with auto admission are at 78-80 rather than 75 since students with those GPAs will score 98 to 99th percentile.Is admission to the School of Medicine guaranteed?
To continue to medical school as a University Scholar, you will need to fulfill all entrance requirements. Your pre-professional advisor will work with you as an undergraduate to make sure that you fulfill the prerequisites for medical school. You will also need to maintain an overall minimum 3.8 grade point average (GPA) and achieve a minimum total score on the Medical College Admissions Test (equal to or above the 97th percentile). If your GPA or MCAT are below this minimum, your eligibility for graduate study will be up to the School of Medicine's discretion.
It wouldn’t hurt, but don’t come across as too narrowly focused. For various reasons you may not get to work with your number 1 choice of faculty mentors.Last year's MSTP prompt was: Briefly describe the area of research you would like to explore in graduate school. (1800 chars)
Besides describing your own research interests, does anyone think we should talk about the relevant department at WashU and mention any faculty?
My guess is they are wondering how much of their applicant pool overlaps with other Schools that require Casper, and in future cycles or maybe even later this cycle they might add them selves in there if a large enough portion of their applicants have already taken it. That would be my best guess.Secondary is asking if we took CASPer, but there is no option to send my score to WashU on the CASPer site. Am I missing something or are they just asking for research purposes?
You will be drug tested for THC at every school you go to. Marijuana is still illegal at the federal level and is only legal in like 10 states for recreation. I am not personally saying it is bad, but even if made legal on a federal level you will likely still be tested for THC at any medical school, residency, or hospital for the foreseeable future.Their background check section says that we have to agree to be drug tested for THC? Anyone know more about this lol? I'm guessing it's because it's in Missouri
Use the returning student one. Then put in the username and password they gave you in the email.can someone help me login to the secondary? when I press on the link in the email it prompts me to choose either returning student or staff. did this happen to anyone?
Yes, but I don’t think WashU is starting to file things until the 10th (at least according to their home page on the secondary).
Of course I get interrupted as I'm recording my name...no way to redo it. Be careful!
My recording also got messed up... ugh! Hopefully they add a way to redo it!
The thrilling conclusion...the admissions team deleted my original recording, allowing me to record a corrected one. They did not add a way to redo the recording in the secondary. If you've had issues with this, you will need to email the admissions team individually to be able to redo your recording.Any updates on this? I also ended up with a corrupted recording.
Reminds me of Steve Weibe, the guy who beat the Donkey Kong world record back in 2006. His original submission at around 5 hours in his son comes down the stairs yelling "Daddy! Stop playing Donkey Kong and WIPE MY BUTT. I have POOOOP." Classic.The thrilling conclusion...the admissions team deleted my original recording, allowing me to record a corrected one.
