We also strongly recommend one course in biochemistry or molecular genetics be taken. All required courses should be completed at the time of application. If they are not, detailed plans for completion by the end of the spring semester for the entering year must be listed on the transcript portion of the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS) application. Documentation of successful completion with an official transcript must be received as soon as a grade is available. Failure to document completion of premedical requirements by July 1, 2015 will result in the rescinding of any acceptance orwaitlist status.
