What If I'm Not Accepted?
The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is required of all applicants who seek admission to the Brody School of Medicine. Information about this test, which is administered throughout the calendar year, may be obtained online at www.aamc.org/students. Applicants are asked to take this test in the spring, but no later than fall, of the year prior to their desired matriculation date in medical school, and to have the results sent to the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University.
While most successful applicants will have completed an undergraduate degree before enrollment, each applicant must have the equivalent of at least three years of acceptable work at an accredited college or university prior to matriculation in medical school. No specific undergraduate major is required, but regardless of the major interest area, the applicant must have completed one year of each of the following courses (preferably prior to taking the MCAT, and definitely prior to admission):
General Biology or Zoology with laboratory (Botany alone is not sufficient to meet this requirement)
General Chemistry with laboratory (which must include both qualitative and quantitative analysis)
Organic Chemistry with laboratory
Physics with laboratory, and
English (or writing intensive courses)
While not required, courses in genetics, biostatistics, biochemistry, humanities, social science, and an additional year of English are strongly recommended. In keeping with AAMC recommendations, applicants are encouraged not to enroll in undergraduate or graduate courses which are likely to be repeated in the medical school curriculum.
