For McMaster’s MD program, the formula for interview selection is as follows:
- 32% cumulative OMSAS GPA
- 32% CARS score
- 32% CASPer score
- + 1% for a completed Master’s degree or +4% for a completed PhD
For McMaster Medicine, your CASPer score is worth as much as your entire undergraduate GPA, or your entire MCAT CARS score. This 90 minute test can make or break your application – and help improve your likelihood of getting an interview significantly if your other scores are weak.
Try our McMaster MMI and Admissions calculator below to determine your likelihood of getting an interview and/or accepted. You’ll notice quickly that the CASPer score is incredibly important to getting an interview – even if you have a very high GPA and CARS score.
