NYMC Acceptance and Waitlist Protocols

NYMC School of Medicine highly recommends applicants participate in the “AMCAS Tool for Choosing Your Medical School”.  AMCAS created this tool to help applicants communicate their decisions about which schools they plan to attend and to support an individual schools’ enrollment management. 

Applicant participation in this process is voluntary.  However, your participation is strongly encouraged.  The greater the number of applicants using this tool will enable all medical schools to offer as many acceptances in a timely fashion as possible to the greatest number of applicants.

Admissions Action Notification

Acceptance notifications are typically sent within 4-6 weeks of your interview date.  A $100 deposit and non-binding NYMC Terms & Conditions Acceptance Agreement is required to hold your spot in the class.  Deposits are applied to the first-year’s tuition and refundable until  April 30th.

Consideration of applicants on the waitlist usually begins in mid-April and continues through mid-July if spots become available.  The NYMC waitlist is not ranked.  Holistic review precludes any arbitrary rank-ordering of candidates on the waitlist.  Our goal is to bring a dynamic and diverse group of first-year students into our program. 

Application Updates

Electronic updates to your application may be submitted to mdadmit@nymc.edu.  (Hard copy updates are not accepted.) This may include an updated transcript (unofficial copies are accepted), a new letter of evaluation, a new activity or publication, or you just want us to know you are still interested in NYMC.
