Medical School Application Deadlines

If you're applying to medical school this application cycle, please know that 23 medical schools have application deadlines on November 15th and by the next issue of Premed Grand Rounds another 17 medical school application deadlines will have passed.

Remember, you do not have to complete your medical school secondary application by the posted deadline, you simply must designate that your primary application is received by then.

Successfully Getting to an Interview

Are you having success in your medical school application process, where you are being invited to interview? Please be sure to share your medical school interview experiences.

Plan B For Applying

If you have not received any medical school interviews or are concerned about your prospects please begin to devise a back up plan. You want to be prepared for the worse case scenario, but obviously hoping for the best outcome, an acceptance to medical school.

It is still early in the application process but if December and January comes and you have not been on any interviews, then your chances of gaining admission are slim.

You should begin to review your application with a trusted advisor and see what are the areas of weakness in your application and begin to address them. If interviewing or the personal statement was an issue you must rewrite and practice for next year. Academic or MCAT issues mean taking more courses to improve your grade point average or retaking the MCAT. When retaking any course or exam you need to evaluate what went wrong the first time and make dramatic changes otherwise you will have the same result.
