Response to COVID-19 - Information for 2021 Admissions Cycle
Timeline: Our application cycle timeline remains the same.
Interviews: All interviews will be conducted virtually during the 2021 Admissions Cycle.
Pass/Fail Grading: Our school will accept pass/fail grades, without prejudice, for courses taken during the COVID-19 pandemic. It has always been our practice to consider grades in the context of numerous other aspects of the application, and an international crisis certainly provides a unique and compelling context. In making this statement, we are cognizant of the fact that some undergraduate schools are providing an option for students to take courses either for grades or on a Pass/Fail basis. We therefore want to be explicit that applicants should not feel pressured by us to choose the graded option. Students and their families are facing many challenges at the moment – maybe even life and death challenges. The pressure for grades need not be one of them.
MCAT: We encourage individuals who were unable to take the MCAT due to COVID-related test cancellations, to not delay their application submission. AMCAS has announced that they are resuming MCAT examinations with scheduling opening May 7, 2020. They are committed to testing all applicants that want to test this application cycle. We will require applicants to have taken the MCAT before we make admissions decisions for the Class of 2025. Applicants should not delay applying simply because an MCAT score is not yet available.
