Can I get into medical school without a science background?

You can get into medical school without majoring in science. Also, there are ways to avoid taking science courses and the MCAT. This is why having a serious science background is not necessary for getting into medical school, but you should expect science to be a part of your life if you choose to pursue medicine.

Why do medical schools ask for photos?

Including poor photographs: At our medical school, we ask applicants to include a photograph, primarily so we can identify them on interview day. It also prevents an applicant from bringing another person in to do their interviews. If this is the case where you’re applying, choose a photo that appears professional.

What background do you need for medical school?

Most schools agree on the basic elements for pre-medical education. Minimum course requirements include one year each of biology, general (inorganic) chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, and related lab work for each. In addition, about two-thirds require English and about one quarter require calculus.
