The Application Review Process

When all of your application materials have been received by the Office of Admissions, you will receive an email notification to let you know your application has been completed.  Please note that it may take up to 7-10 business days for your application materials to be processed and properly recorded – even if materials are submitted electronically.  Applicants may also check the status of their application completion via the Emory Supplemental Application.  

All completed applications will be reviewed and will remain in review until the end of the interview season (September – February).  We cannot guarantee the timeframe in which your application will be reviewed – only that it will be reviewed thoroughly.  NO COMPLETED APPLICANTS WILL BE REJECTED DURING THE INTERVIEW SEASON.  The ONLY decision that is made during this time is the decision to invite for an interview.   If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted by email or telephone.  

It is extremely critical that you keep your contact information updated with AMCAS during this time.  Please also let the Office of Admissions know if you will be out of the country or unreachable by telephone or email for any period of time during the interview season (September – February).  

A personal interview is required to be considered for acceptance – there are no exceptions.  (Due to the high volume of applications we receive from exceptional candidates each year, it is impossible to interview all qualified applicants.  Consequently, failure to be offered an interview is not an indication that a student is considered unsuited for a medical career.)   All correspondence concerning applications to the MD program should be addressed to:   Emory University School of Medicine, Office of Admissions, 100 Woodruff Circle, Suite 231, Atlanta, GA 30322; Phone: 404.727.5660; Email:
