The Morehouse School of Medicine will accept American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS) applications to the first-year entering class beginning May 1st of the year prior to enrollment. The deadline for having all required credentials into AMCAS is December 1st of the year prior to admission - this is a receipt date, not a postmark date. AMCAS applications received after December 1st will not be forwarded to MSM.
Upon receipt of the application from AMCAS, the Office of Admissions invites qualified applicants to submit supplementary materials to complete the application process. At this stage, the school charges a non-refundable application fee of $50.00. Only applicants who received a fee waiver for the AMCAS application are eligible for a waiver of the MSM supplemental fee. If you received an AMCAS fee waiver, select "Waiver" at the payment processing screen. Applicants are encouraged to submit materials well in advance of the deadline to allow sufficient time for receipt of all materials requested and to resolve any logistical problems which may occur prior to the deadline.
If possible, all letters of recommendation for Morehouse School of Medicine should be sent directly to AMCAS (instructions for submitting letters to AMCAS are provided within the AMCAS application).
Applicants must submit one of the following:
- Letters and/or composite letter of recommendation from a Pre-Health advisor or Committee; OR,
- Three letters of recommendation from individual letters writers (two letters from science professors are preferred).
Additional letters of reference may also be provided to AMCAS.
Once all supplementary materials are received and the application is complete, the applicant's admission credentials are reviewed and evaluated. Selected applicants are invited for a personal interview. Following the interview, final decisions are made by the Committee on Admissions.
