We require all candidates to take the MCAT, and it must be taken no later than September of the year preceding admission to the School of Medicine. If there is more than one MCAT attempt, all test scores must be included on the application.
The test must be repeated if, at the time of matriculation, more than six years have elapsed since it was taken. For 2024 matriculation, the oldest acceptable MCAT score date is July 2020. For questions about registration and test administration, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Based on a thorough and comparative evaluation of the AMCAS application, supplemental information, and letters of recommendation, the candidate receives a request for virtual interview sessions with CDU faculty. To adhere to physical distancing requirements due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are conducting all interviews virtually.
