Once we receive a verified AMCAS application, applicants who have an MCAT score in the 25th percentile or above will automatically be sent our Secondary Application. Those applicants who have a score lower than the 25th percentile may receive a Secondary Application after an initial review.
Submit your Secondary Application as soon as possible after receiving it. Please note, there is an application fee of $85 due upon submission. That fee is waived for those approved for the AAMC-Fee Assistance Program.
Secondary Application Tips
- Write essays about who you are, not what you think Admissions wants to hear.
- Communicate clearly about what you have found in your life to help you become the person you want to be.
- Know the medical school’s mission. Ours is: “To transform health through bold and innovative education, discovery, and service." Learn more about the strategic pillars of our mission.
- Know the medical school’s vision for its graduates. Find ours.
Once your Secondary Application is complete, you will be able to access your Applicant Portal. If at any time you want to submit updates to your application, please use the checklist on your Applicant Portal.
Our Holistic Approach
Please be assured you will be fairly assessed on your academic and personal competencies. We thoroughly review each and every file, which can take several months. Please review our process for evaluating applicants.
First M.D. interview invites are emailed to candidates as early as mid-month. MSTP interviewees are notified on a different schedule.
Every Monday starting with when the first round of interview invites are emailed, we post updates on Twitter.
