In order to retain their acceptance, students must maintain a minimum cumulative and pre-requisite science undergraduate GPA of 3.50 EACH Semester (we do not round up), earn no grade lower than a "C", and score a minimum of 509 (80th percentile rank) on the MCAT. Applicants have a maximum of two attempts (if needed) to attain the minimum score by August 31st, one year prior to their expected matriculation at SUNY Upstate. Acceptance is conditional and will be rescinded if conditions of acceptance and admission requirements are not met.
