MSBS Program Admissions
All offers of admission to Icahn School of Medicine are provisional, pending receipt and evaluation of final transcripts. Transcripts must be sent directly from the appropriate Registrar’s Office to the ISMMS Admissions Office. These and all other materials requested by the Registrar in conjunction with the admissions process must be received to complete a student’s enrollment. Submission of false or misleading information in the application materials or in connection with the application process will be considered by the Admissions Committee and/or the Committee for Academic Review as grounds for withdrawal of the acceptance offer, dismissal, or rescission of degree.
Applications are invited from students who have completed their undergraduate degree with a major in the sciences. Applicants should have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and some prior independent research experience. The Program admits only students who wish to pursue the MS degree on a full-time basis.
Admission is based on the applicant’s academic records, prior MCAT or GRE scores, past research experience, letters of recommendation, and personal statement regarding ultimate career plans.
