Early Decision applications must be received by AMCAS by August 1 and complete in the Office of Admissions by September 1 of the year prior to matriculation. For the class entering in 2019, the early decision deadline is September 4, 2018.
MCAT results must be received by the Office of Admissions by September 1 to be considered for Early Decision. For the class entering in 2019, MCAT scores must be received by the early decision deadline, which is September 4, 2018. Applicants should schedule their MCAT exams in time for results to be received by our office by the deadline. Applicants must also list the last date that they will be taking the MCAT exam on the AMCAS application; additional MCAT results will be accepted for early decision applicants not selected for Early Decision.
Final decisions regarding Early Decision acceptance will be made by October 1.
