Early Decision

The Early Decision Program (EDP) provides the well-qualified applicant an opportunity to secure acceptance by October 1. Candidates accepted through the EDP must attend the accepting institution. By applying as an EDP candidate, the individual agrees not to apply to any other U.S. medical school until any of the following occurs:

1) denial of an EDP commitment

2) release from the EDP commitment; or

3) October 1 notification deadline expiration.

The limited number of early decision seats are awarded based on exceptional academic standing and MCAT scores. The application deadline is August 1st.
