Updating Your Contact Information
 
All applicants must maintain updated contact information (address, phone, email) with AMCAS throughout the entire application process.  Your AMCAS contact information is our only source of contact information for you.  We do not maintain a separate database of contact information.



Reapplicants

Any applicant who has been accepted but subsequently fails to enroll, or who has been refused admission but wishes to enter in a subsequent year, must re-apply for admission and must meet all requirements in force at the time of the new application. The Admissions Committee expects all re-applicants to have improved their credentials significantly.

Reapplicant applications will not be reviewed before January 1, 2015, however the applications must be completed by the deadlines given. This is done so that any reapplicant can send in supplemental information to add to their application (fall course grades, additional shadowing/volunteer, etc.) for the Committee to review.
