Applicants should take time to review these important considerations before applying into our PBPM program:

  • Applicants are required to be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident of the United States.
  • Students are only eligible to apply for fall enrollment if they have completed General Chemistry I and II lectures and labs (within the past 5 years).
  • The college typically does not allow post-baccalaureate students to retake courses they took as undergraduates, unless the courses were taken more than five years ago. The exceptions to this policy are the general chemistry courses offered during summer school.
  • It is recommended that students who took general chemistry more than three years ago retake the courses in order to build a solid foundation for organic chemistry.
  • Applicants who have completed more than half the medical school admissions requirements offered in our program curriculum within the last five years will not be considered for this program.
  • The Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is typically required for admission. Due to COVID-19, applicants for 2020 are not required to submit GRE scores. 
  • Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis, so early application submission is encouraged for this competitive program.
  • Review of an application will occur only after the file has been submitted and contains all of the required components; incomplete files will not be reviewed.
  • Admitted students typically have two weeks from the date of the admission letter to accept the offer of admission and submit a $350 nonrefundable enrollment deposit.
  • This program is not designed for students who are seeking to enhance their undergraduate science GPA and/or improve their MCAT scores. Individuals seeking to raise their undergraduate science GPA and/or improve their MCAT scores should refer to the American Association of Medical Colleges website to find an academic record enhancement program.
