    North of the 49 deg
    To my knowledge, there are two schools in Canada that don't require MCATs: University of Ottawa and McMaster.

    Although this question may sound funny at first, it is a good one. Did anyone ever notice in the MSAR it sometimes says "97% of applicants have taken the mcats" or something like that for each school profile? I don't get it.

    haha ok now that I wrote all that out I just figured out the answer. Early acceptance programs (like in sophomore year) such as Mt sinai's humanities program and tufts early acceptance prgm dont require mcats. <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    I heard somewhere that Hopkin's does not require the MCAT. Is this true?? :confused:

    Actually Hopkins didn't require the MCAT until only a few years ago. You could apply there with just your SAT score. Of course, as soon as I come anywhere close to applying, they go and change their policy! <img border="0" alt="[Pissy]" title="" src="graemlins/pissy.gif" />

    premed315: The mt sinai humanities in medicine program used to only be available to students of 5 undergrads (mine is included) but last year was opened to all udergrads. It recruits humanities majors that are interested in becoming doctors. You are not supposed to have taken any science classes at all except one bio class and you have to have at least a 1300 SAT to apply. Applications go out around October of your sophomore year. The summer after junior year, Sinai has a summer school type thing that is mandatory for accepted applicants. It goes over chem, physics and orgo to catch you up. I think Sinai overs around 30 spots a year for this, but I could be wrong.

I don't even know if they advertise it to every school, but it's out there now. Wish I knew about it in high school and took an SAT prep course. I heard some students picked their undergrad just to get into this program! Ha!
