Is there any announcements about Med schools not accepting pre-requisites that are taken fully online? I am hearing mixed things.
Hi there! Generally, the best way to get the most accurate information about this topic is to go directly to a specific medical school’s admissions website. Many medical schools are making announcements about how their requirements are going to be changed, if at all, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and are displaying these announcements on their home pages. Take some time to do a few Google searches on some medical schools that might be on your radar, and see what they’re saying. If you can’t find the information you’re looking for, a quick email to the admissions office might help you get some extra clarification. Every medical school seems to have a slightly different view on this issue, so there really is no universal answer.
For the medical schools in Michigan, here are a few responses that have been publicized online:
–University of Michigan: “We would like to assure any future Michigan Medical School applicants that we will accept pass/fail coursework for any courses impact by this outbreak, whether mandated by your school or personal decision.”
–Wayne State University: “For any prerequisite coursework, Wayne State University School of Medicine strongly recommends that you do not select the pass/fail or credit/no credit option.”
–Central Michigan University: “We want all future Central Michigan University College of Medicine applicants to know that we will allow pass/fail or credit/no credit grades for any coursework taken during the impacted time frame, including prerequisite coursework.”
Please let us know if there’s anything else we can do to help! Stay informed!
