2 Types of Medical Schools Allopathic awards an M.D. degree --- Generally look for a science GPA of 3.4 or better and MCAT s of 30. Osteopathic awards a D.O. degree--- Generally look for science GPA of 3.2 or better and MCAT s of 27.

3 Minimum Requirements for Medical School Admission Must have a good science and overall GPA to meet school s AVERAGE requirements. Must meet the school s AVERAGE requirements on each section of the MCAT exam. Must have meaningful clinical exposure and should have extra-curricula activities especially in your community or abroad.
