    what is the average applicant GPA/MCAT requirement that a student receives acceptance to BU's program?

    Our ideal applicant has at least a 3.0 overall GPA, 50th percentile on the MCAT or a GRE quantitative score of 70th percentile or higher. However, Boston University uses a holistic review process for applications, so it does not always come down to just numbers. MAMS will accept people below this- this is not a cutoff, just an average. Letters of recommendation, life experiences, and personal statements all play a large role.

    if you don't have a 50th percentile MCAT score would you recommend taking the GRE? or retaking the MCAT? or not apply?

    We use a holistic process, so those numbers are not hard cutoffs but rather an average. I would make an appointment to speak with the program director, Dr. Offner. She will be able to give you more precise advice on your individual background!
