The Primary AMCAS application for the M.D. program is due by October 15th.
The Secondary application for the M.D./Ph.D. (MSTP) program is due by October 15th.
With our rolling admissions policy, applicants are notified of their status by no later than the 20th of the month following the month in which their interview took place beginning in October. Admitted students’ seats in the class are held until the AAMC's national decision date of April 30th. No deposit is ever required at Michigan!
Congratulations! Once you are invited to join the next class of Michigan Medical School students, you will receive more information about connecting with fellow admits and current students as well as regular updates about next steps, including financial aid, Second Look and the White Coat Ceremony.
This decision is not an offer of admission, waitlist, nor is it a rejection. Your file is on hold while we review other candidates who interview later than you. A final review of your file will take place no later than March. We appreciate your patience. You are welcome to update your application at any time using the Applicant Portal. Typically one to five students are admitted each cycle out of the Deferred Decision group.
Historically we have not taken students off of the waitlist, but we did in the 2017-18 cycle. We operate on a tiered waitlist system, which means we will select candidates from the Upper-, Middle-, and then Lower-Tier. Candidates are not ranked within each tier. While we appreciate updates and new information via the Applicant Portal, the number of contacts you make with our office will not impact our waitlist decision. We appreciate your continued patience and interest in the University of Michigan Medical School.
- Lower-Tier - While your file will be kept open for review, it would be prudent for you to aggressively pursue other options. We will notify you of a final decision on or about June 1.
- Middle-Tier - Typically only limited admission offers have come from this tier. We will notify you of a final decision on or about July 1.
- Upper-Tier - If admission offers are made during any given cycle, they typically come from this tier. We will notify you of a final decision about August 1.
After careful review, it is with regret that we are unable to offer you a position in University of Michigan Medical School's next entering class.
