Sorry if this is kind of a dumb question, but I noticed that one of the requirements for medical school is 90 credit hours. 90 credits is not a bachelors degree, correct? Do people actually get accepted with only 90 credits or must you have a bachelors degree to really stand a chance at getting accepted?

I'm guessing that since competition is so fierce the more schooling the better, but I'm curious if they actually accept people without a bachelors.

Thanks.

In my class there is one student (out of 88) who was accepted without finishing the bachelors. It happens, but not often.

Both DO and MD programs offer this option. But, as you have pointed out the competition is feirce, so the more schooling the better. In any case, even if you were accepted without a BS degree, it would highly lessen any opportunities you might have to work on post-graduate degrees (e.g. MBA, phD, MS, etc.,).
