Early Decision Plan

Clinic

A strong applicant who is interested in applying only to the University of Massachusetts Medical School may wish to submit an Early Decision application. An applicant who does not receive an offer of acceptance under the Early Decision Plan will automatically be considered with the general pool of candidates for possible acceptance at a later date.

Early decision applications must be received by AMCAS by August 1 and complete in the admissions office by September 1 of the year prior to matriculation. Final decisions regarding acceptance will be made by October 1. 

Early Decision MCAT Policy

MCAT results must be in the admissions office by 09/01 to be considered for early decision. We recommend that applicants schedule their MCAT exams in time for results to be in the admissions office by the deadline. Applicants must list on their AMCAS application the last date that they plan to take the MCAT. We will accept additional MCAT results for early decision applicants who are not accepted to the program who wish to be considered for regular program
