Early Acceptance Program with LECOM
General Information and Requirements:
Fredonia's program with the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) is open to high school seniors and Fredonia underclassmen. There are 4+4 and 3+4 (for highly motivated students) tracks. In the 3+4 track, students matriculate to LECOM after their junior year at Fredonia and then credits from the first year of medical school transfer back to Fredonia so the students earn the BS degree.
High school students who apply to the program should have:
93 high school grade point average
SAT scores of 1250 or better (combined Critical Reading & Math) or ACT scores of 28 or higher
Students who apply from Fredonia should have:
a 3.4 or higher overall grade point average
a 3.2 or higher science grade point average
Information on the early acceptance program requirements are on the LECOM website, there is a link on this site for students to initiate the application process. Students who are applying to this program need to interview with LECOM. LECOM then notifies Fredonia of the students accepted into the program. Students also need to apply to Fredonia as well, this application is independent of the LECOM application. Please note that students accepted into the LECOM program are exempt from taking the MCAT exam.
