Prior to submitting an application, you must request that a complete set of official transcripts be forwarded directly to AMCAS by the registrar of each school you have attended. Official transcripts are not required for work you have taken the previous term (e.g. if application is submitted in summer, previous spring official transcripts are not required). No processing of your application will be performed until both the application and all required official transcripts are received by AMCAS. Completed applications are accepted by AMCAS no earlier than June 1 and no later than October 16 the year before the August of planned enrollment.
A student not admitted as the result of this first application may file a second application in one succeeding year. A third application is discouraged.
On the basis of a thorough and comparative evaluation of the AMCAS application, supplemental information and letters of recommendation, the candidate receives either a request to attend a multiple mini-interview session. Applicants are expected to come to UCLA to interview and are responsible for their own travel arrangements and expenses. In case of financial need, we offer travel awards to defray the travel expenses. For the 2019 entering freshman class, first offers of acceptance were mailed from the Admissions Office on November 2018. The remainder of the class is filled after that period.
The David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA Office of Admissions adheres to the AAMC's recommended Applicant and Acceptance Protocols for Applicants.
Medical College Admission Test: It is recommended that all candidates take the Medical College Admission Test in the spring, but it must be taken no later than September of the year preceding admission to the School of Medicine. If more than one MCAT was taken, all the test grades must be included when making application.
The test must be repeated if, at the time of matriculation, more than three years have elapsed since it was taken. Beginning with the 2020 application year DGSOM will accept 2015 MCAT. For questions about registration and test administration contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
