GRE/MCAT Information


Documentation from the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) must reflect scores earned within the last 5 years.  The GRE is administered by the:

Educational Testing Service

VMCAS will now collect GRE Scores and add them to your VMCAS application for Cornell.  A separate College Code will be available soon for you to use when applying to Cornell's DVM degree program.  For applicants in the regular application cycle please use this number. If you use the Cornell College Code below, send us an email (vet_admissions@cornell.edu) and we will add them to your application.

For the Early Acceptance Program and Transfer Applicants, Cornell University's College of Veterinary Medicine's College Code for the GRE's is 2549.  Official scores must be sent directly from ETS to the college.

We recommend all pre-vets study and take practice tests before taking an official test.  The GRE has free practice tests available at: Practice GRE Test

Practicing for any test should help reduce test anxiety.  The more familiar a test taker is with the test, the less likely you will experience high levels of test anxiety.  Cornell also has a policy of using your best verbal and quantitative scores (even if your best scores were not earned on the same test date).

Please visit the Educational Testing Service web site for important information about the GRE revised General Test in August 2011.


Cornell also accepts the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) as an option for the standardized test assessment.  Information about this exam can be found on the AAMC web site at the following URL:  MCAT Exam

Practice MCAT Test

Here you will find information about preparing to take the test, dates and registration, and how to receive and send your scores.  Cornell University's College of Veterinary Medicine College Code for the MCAT's is 993.  We need official scores to come directly to us from the AAMC.
