Interview and Selection Process

We conduct a holistic review of every application we receive.

Selection Criteria

In our quest to train well-rounded individuals with the capacity to develop into skilled and compassionate physicians, every application we receive is reviewed holistically.

Holistic review means we assess your academic performance and MCAT score in the context of many factors, included but not limited to, life experiences and your background, your integrity and your intellectual curiosity, your leadership roles and your community engagement.

Although most of our applicants have majored in science, we encourage students from a variety of academic fields to apply.

Regardless of your major, you must have completed at least half of your prerequisite courses before applying.


We invite approximately 600 candidates to interview during our admissions cycle from August through April.

Committee Decisions and Notifications

We will issue our Regular MD decisions at the end of December and again at the end of March. Applicants will be notified electronically.

If accepted, you must respond within one week from the date of your acceptance and submit a $100 acceptance deposit, refundable until May 1.

Deferred Admission

Under special circumstances, the Director of Admissions considers requests for deferred admission. You should fully describe your circumstances in a written petition emailed to the Office of Medical Admissions.
