    Two Letters of Recommendation
    Please submit two letters of recommendation, which should be written by faculty members who can speak to your potential for success in a graduate-level program. (For the biomedical sciences one-year and two-year research tracks, it is suggested that you submit letters from science faculty members.)

    Test Scores:

    • Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT)
      For students wanting to apply to the College of Osteopathic Medicine through the master of science in biomedical sciences program or the master of arts in bioethics (one-year) program, it is highly recommended that students submit official MCAT scores. Applicants with MCAT scores are given priority in the application process. To send test scores to KCUMB, log into the THx system and select "print an official copy". Email the document to cobadmissions@kcumb.edu or mail it to KCUMB, 1750 Independence Ave., Kansas City, MO, 64106.
    • Graduate Record Exam (GRE) General Test
      Students interested in the two-year research track in biomedical sciences are required to have GRE test scores submitted. Scores can be sent directly to KCUMB.
