Although the Office of Graduate Studies at Case Western Reserve University requires a minimum GPA of 3.0 for admission to graduate school, the criteria for admissions into the MTTP may be more rigorous. The MTTP Admissions Committee looks specifically at an applicant's cumulative and science GPAs as well as the courses taken. These should include calculus, biochemistry, organic chemistry, biology, and, preferably, cell and molecular biology and mammalian physiology.

Each applicant is required to take the GRE General Test (verbal, quantitative, and analytical sections) and to submit official scores as a part of the application for admission. High scores (>75%) in all areas are desirable.

Plan to take the test by no later than October.
