I just received my copy of the 2002-2003 MSAR. I was reading the section for State University of New York at Buffalo Medical School, and read that the minimum number of Credits for admission was 60. However, Upon reading the numbers for University at Buffalo AND about 10 others, I discovered that they claim all of the entering students have their Baccalaureate degree. I understand that they 'prefer' that applicants will complete their baccalaureate before matriculation, but for some of us that don't have time on our side, completing the BS or BA isn't an option. Are the Universities that claim 60 or 90 credits as a requirement just blowing smoke in order to get the secondary application fees, when in reality you aren't even getting a look? I have 82 credits, but not in anything that I would even consider completing for a BS degree; and I have been told the vast majority of credits wouldn't transfer into a curriculum in which I am interested. Therefore, I would be starting from square one. If a BS or BA is truely required, then I have some reevaluating to do.
