    Not having a bachelors is for applicants from extraordinary backgrounds, but simply not wanting to complete a degree is not a good enough reason for the adcom.

    Basically, you'll need to finish your degree.

    I know SABA gives bachelor's degree to people in health science for those who get admitted without a degree. I was just wondering if AUC does the same?

    Technically, it's not required, just as it is not required for many US schools. However, although the minimum is 90 credits, you're not going to get accepted without a degree. I don't think they've done that in years, and it would only be for extraordinary circumstances...definitely not someone who just doesn't want to take the time to get it.

    I've never heard about that from Saba, but AUC definitely does not. You are not getting into AUC without a bachelors. period.

    Decent GPA, respectable MCAT... I think you should be good. Sept tends to be a little more competitive, but I think your stats should fall right around the average.

    Chances are better for May, but you should be fine for either.

    Good luck!
