Buying Access to the MSAR Website

Access to Medical School Admission Requirements is available for purchase through the AAMC Store. A subscription to Medical School Admission Requirements includes comprehensive data, deadlines, policies and information for each medical school. You may sort, browse, and compare medical school profiles.

The Official Guide to Medical School Admissions includes chapters on deciding if a career in medicine is right for you, how to prepare for medical school during your undergraduate years, and an overview of medical school education. The guidebook contains some national data, but school-specific data and individual school profiles are only available in the Medical School Admission Requirements site.

The Official Guide to Medical School Admissions and the Medical School Admission Requirements website are published in the spring of each year, typically in April. Access to the Medical School Admission Requirements website is available for one calendar year following the date of purchase/activation, and everyone with a current MSAR subscription will automatically receive access to the new edition as soon as it is published.

Depending on the product you purchased, you will have either one year or two years of unlimited access from the date of purchase or from the date your access code was entered. You can renew your subscription at a discounted rate when it expires. For further details, see the Medical School Admission Requirements Terms and Conditions.

Those who qualify for the Fee Assistance Program will be granted access upon notification that they have qualified for assistance. Complimentary MSAR subscriptions are valid through the end of the year following qualification.
