Applicants who meet the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health’s academic minimums are invited to complete the secondary application. These minimums are a cumulative undergraduate GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale and at least one MCAT score of 500 or higher.

GPA exception: Applicants who do not meet the GPA minimum, but have completed 12 credits of post-baccalaureate coursework in the natural sciences (i.e. biology, biochemistry, physiology) and earn at least a 3.0 GPA in those courses will be reviewed and may be sent an invitation to complete the secondary application.

The invitation to complete a secondary application will be sent via email. Applicants mut ensure that their email address is listed correctly in AMCAS. The invitation will include instructions for completing the secondary application.

The deadline for completing the secondary application is December 1 of each year, but we recommend submitting a high-quality secondary application as early as possible. Once the secondary application is submitted, changes cannot be made, so please review it carefully before submitting.

We recommend that applicants print a copy of their secondary application for their records at the time of submission.
