If you are referring to the core competencies for admissions, Einstein Medical School has an extensive discussion of this
Course Requirements | M.D. Admissions | Albert Einstein College of Medicine
If you are referring to the educational competences for medical students, Einstein explains that as well

What up with this line? MCATs? Really?...

MCATS
  • All applicants must take the MCATs not later than September of the year preceding matriculation and not earlier than three years prior to application (2012).

You will be taking your "boards" if you are lucky enough to make it to medical school. I would suggest that you may want to be of the mindset that "MCATs" is the proper form and hope you will get to that point

:smack: To @ G wrong: AAMC_MCAT Twitter handle (no s), AAMC site (no s), AAMC ...

Just in case you want to argue (again), here's the pic of their site... notice, no (s) - it's a pet peeve of mine, always sounds so... unintelligent.

Really, it's proper form? I was always under the impression that the addition of (s) to MCAT was incorrect. :shrug:

I think that you guys have bigger fish to fry than MCAT vs MCATs.
You don't like alot, MCATs is likewise incorrect and a pet peeve :love:
