Recommendations for Medical School Admission Officers and Applicants

Applicants and medical schools have complementary responsibilities in the annual medical school application and admission processes.

The AAMC offers the following recommendations to ensure that applicants are afforded timely notification of the outcome of their medical school applications and have timely access to available first-year positions; and to ensure that schools have no unfilled positions in their entering classes. These recommendations are distributed for the information of prospective medical students, their advisors, and medical school personnel.
