OMSAS – Medical College Application Test (MCAT)
When you write the MCAT, you must arrange to have your official scores released to OMSAS.
For MCAT requirements, refer to the McMaster, Queen’s, Toronto and Western university sections in the online application.
Your AAMC ID Number
In your application, indicate your AAMC ID number (an 8-digit number assigned by the Association of American Medical Colleges) and your most recent test date.
If you are writing for the first time in July, August or September 2017, you may not have received your AAMC ID number when you applied online. If this is the case, use SAM to provide OMSAS with this number when you receive it.
Releasing Your Scores to OMSAS
- Each year that you apply, but no earlier than July 15, 2017, contact the AAMC and request that they release your MCAT scores to OMSAS. The Ontario medical schools require full disclosure of all MCAT score results.
- If you wrote the July, August or September 2017 MCAT, wait until your scores are made available before requesting their release to OMSAS. All scores must be released to OMSAS prior to November 1, 2017.
- To release your MCAT scores to OMSAS, log in to your AAMC account and, under the “My Reports” tab, click “Send Scores Electronically”. You can then select the institutions to release the scores to; OMSAS is spelled out as: “Ontario Medical Schools Application Service”.
- The medical schools reserve the right to disqualify you if they do not receive your MCAT scores by November 1, 2017.
- You must submit your AAMC ID number using SAM.
Note: The medical schools are aware that you may not have received the results of the September MCAT prior to the October 2, 2017 application deadline. Fees will not be refunded for choices dropped because the MCAT results did not meet eligibility requirements set by the medical schools.
