BUSM recognizes that MCAT and CASPer test dates have been cancelled.   Review the AAMC site and CASPer sites for updates on test availability.  We will be flexible with deadlines in order for applicants to submit their test scores.  We do suggest however, that you submit your supplemental application as soon as possible, rather than waiting for test scores to be released.
