    I don't have a bachelors (had about 100 units). Although they did MERP me. Got through the island and Step 1 just fine. Some State medical boards require 90 semester units of preprofessional education for licensure, hence why Ross and a lot of other med schools require a minimum of 90 units to ensure their grads can get licensed in those states.

    Many US medical schools do not "require" a bachelors, only the prerequisites and a MCAT score, and will accept some students without a degree, although they usually have excellent grades, good lors etc.

    oh PLEEEEEZE!!! the only students i without a Bachelors in Med School in the US are those who are part of a B S/MD program....there are enough well qualified applicants that they do not have to take a person without a bachelors...
