Should the MCAT Requirement Be Waived for 2021 Medical School Admissions?
The American College of Physicians (ACP) has issued a position statement that strongly encourages medical schools to waive the MCAT requirement for students applying for admission in 2021 due to the “unique challenges” posed by COVID-19. Conversely, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) issued an open letter to MCAT examinees stating that it is only fair to continue requiring the test in the current admissions cycle.
The ACP is encouraging medical schools to waive the MCAT requirement for 2021 admissions due to COVID-19. Conversely, the AAMC issued a letter stating that it is only fair to continue requiring the MCAT. Are you for or against waiving the MCAT in 2021?
