Admissions Decision and the Decision Process

Applicants to the MD program will begin receiving acceptance offers after October 15th. We have a rolling admissions policy so applicants will be notified approximately one month after their interview date. Once notified, an applicant has two weeks to accept or decline their seat in the class. No deposit is required until after April 30th. The deposit is non-refundable, but will applied towards tuition. An acceptance offer may be rescinded if any of the required pre-matriculation documents are not received by the deadline.
