Entrance Exam

Most Podiatry programs require the MCAT, but requirements vary by school. (A few schools may accept DAT, OAT, or GRE scores as an alternative.) Competitive MCAT scores for Podiatry programs are lower than those for medical schools, typically around the 50th percentile.

Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) AAMC: What’s on the MCAT


Each year the Health Professions Advising Center holds an MCAT Workshop and offers an on campus practice test day. Many MCAT study guides and materials are also available to sign out from the HPAC resource collection. Although we do not offer a formal MCAT prep course at Bradley, HPAC advises students to help them develop a personalized strategy, timeline, and study plan to meet their individual needs. There are many commercially available MCAT prep materials and services. We do not endorse any one over the others, but can assist students in choosing products and services that fit their learning style, timeline, and budget.
