Medical School Applications Explained #SHORTS

Medical school application season is here. This is the typical application process and what you should expect. The central part of your application is the primary application, which provides your basic information, such as your GPA and MCAT, personal statement, extracurricular descriptions, and more to all prospective schools. This information is submitted through a centralized online service, which will depend on the schools you apply to – AMCAS for MD, AACOMAS for DO, and TMDSAS for Texas programs. You can submit this as early as end of May or early June.

After submitting your primary application, medical schools may send a secondary application. These are specific to each school and often ask for additional essays related to issues in healthcare, your leadership roles, or a setback you’ve overcome.

Then we have interview season. Most interviews happen between September and February, but some might be earlier or later. Interviews can follow a traditional format, a group interview format, or a multiple mini-interview or MMI format, where you have short, independent stations.

Lastly, it’s time for the outcome, which may be an acceptance, rejection, or waitlist. Be prepared to wait, because this might take weeks or months.

If you want to crush it during application season, look no further. Check out our other videos.
