UCLA’s Geffen School of Medicine Raises GPA and MCAT Cutoff Scores






UCLA’s School of Medicine has raised the bar on its GPA and MCAT scores for applicants to be eligible for admission, sparking some controversy about the effect this might have on holistic review of applicants and the resulting diversity of the medical school’s student population.  The new cutoff numbers will be 3.4 and 512, according to the proposal that will be implemented in the 2019-2020 application cycle. Students offered a different proposal to counter the proposed policy change.
