Medical School Admissions (2010-2011 Cycle) – Be On Your Best Behavior
This is the time of medical school admission decisions. You likely have and will continue to hear from schools regarding your acceptance status. Every school has a different time line for reviewing applications and offering acceptances. Naturally, you may feel inclined to check in with certain schools to see when final decisions will be made. Even though this is a time of high anxiety, please be sure to be polite when contacting schools. Angering the assistant answering the phone is a very easy way to sink your application. Also, remember to avoid slang, acronyms, and text shorthand in e-mails to schools. Every phone call and e-mail should use formal language.
Haven’t heard from schools yet and wondering what to do? Call 415.939.5251 or e-mail info@MDadmit.com to set up a consulting session with a Harvard/Stanford MD and medical school admissions insider.
