Mount Vernon Nazarene University: Life Changing

Pre-Medical


Should You Finish College?

The vast majority of students complete a bachelors degree before attending medical school. In recent years, Ohio medical schools have consistently reported that 99% to 100% of their student body possessed an undergraduate degree. The same is true at schools of optometry, podiatry and veterinary medicine. Graduation from college is the norm; only an occasional and truly exceptional candidate is admitted without a baccalaureate degree.

At this time, dental schools and chiropractic schools do admit some applicants who have not completed a bachelors degree. The candidate must still have passed all of the required science and humanities courses. Some students are admitted after completing three years of college work; a few are accepted after two years of college. However, in all health professions the trend has been that an increasing percentage of successful applicants have finished college.
