Does anyone know if any schools require/request high school transcripts/SAT scores. Please list known and suspected schools. I would bet this would be on the sec. app. I know for a fact a few dental schools require these but i have no idea with medicine

Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences (USUHS) - reqs SAT score and date.
Texas Tech - req high school class rank but no transcript (plus some leadership positions from high school).
Baylor - SAT, class rank

Those are the only ones I've run across so far.

Baylor, and I think Jefferson did too. I didn't remember mine so I said that on Baylor (they give you that option) and for Jefferson I just guessed. I know the range but not the exact score. It was a long time ago :)

Long time for me as well, but I left it blank. Jefferson is doing it for analysis, not using it as a criteria for admission. They didn't mind that I didn't know it.

add WashU to the list.

if any school takes you out of the mix because of high school stuff, then they are idiots.

Specifically, WashU wants your high school GPA and class rank and your ACT/SAT scores. I was lucky that I remembered seeing my ACT score printout when I was home (don't know why I saved it) and didn't throw it away.

HS GPAs? during my first 2 years of high school, we worked on a 10 point scale, then we switched to some scale that went to 4.6 or something like that....how are they going to take these numbers seriously?

Wayne State asks about SAT scores in their interview. Since I had taken my SATs more than 20 years ago I tried joke: "It's been a long time, but I think my score was something like a MCCXXX...."

The guy didn't laugh, didn't even smile. Damn ER docs -- they've got no sense of humor!
