Nontraditional Route to Med School Success
July 30, 2010

The Mount Sinai School of Medicine has released research that suggests students can succeed in medical school without any of the three things normally assumed to be absolute requirements to get in -- organic chemistry, physics and the Medical College Admission Test -- The New York Times reported. Mount Sinai has long had a small program admitting students who studied humanities or social sciences subjects as undergraduates and didn't take the MCAT. The new research found that these students' performance in medical school was equivalent to that of those who went through a traditional pre-med curriculum and who took the MCAT.
