New MCATs vs old MCATs

<p>There's been a lot of discussion of which to take for the students entering med school in fall of 2016. My son is finishing his sophomore year and has finished all his premed requirements. So before he signed up for summer prep courses I decided to call a few med schools to see what the deal is. I called a Columbia, Cornell, and NYU med schools and all 3 told me the same thing. It absolutely doesn't matter if you take old or new MCATs as long as the result is less then 3 years old by the time you apply. </p>
