Hi- the matriculation rate for Bennington postbacs averages at about 95%. Here is a link to the Postbac Pages of our website- you’ll find more information there as well as a page of FAQ’s that may be helpful. Let us know if you have more questions. Thanks!
Hi and thanks for the question. Calculus and Statistics are both good ways to prepare for the study of science and are also required by some medical schools. Students have the option to take them during the postbac year but if you have the ability to get them in before attending you may appreciate the lighter load and having those concepts down beforehand.
Hi- we do accept SAT scores that are older. You may submit them as a part of your high school transcript or scan and upload them in the application. If you feel that GRE scores would more accurately reflect your academic abilities you may submit them instead. Here is a link to our FAQ page. Let us know if you have more questions- we’ll be happy to try and answer them for you.
Hello and thanks for the questions. Bennington does encourage the submission of test scores in the Postbac Premed application and the majority of applicants do include them. However, we recognize them as just one part of the whole and each application is read taking all components into consideration. While it can be helpful to evaluate a candidate’s experience in standardized test-taking we do place more importance on the essay, resume and letters of recommendation. Let us know if you have other questions- we’ll be happy to talk with you.
Bennington’s Postbac Premed Program is one year, beginning in mid-June and ending in early June the following year. For more information, follow the link to our website- you can request an information packet or speak with the program coordinator. Thanks for the question!
