APPLICATION PROCESS – Class of 2021 Admissions Cycle
We request that applicants complete and submit their applications online. However, if for any reason, you are unable to do so, please contact us.
Please attach the following documentation to your online application:
- Passport Size Photograph (2 x 2 inches or 51 x 51 mm in size)
- MCAT Score
Please mail the following documentation to our New York Office:
Sackler School of Medicine
Committee on Admissions
17 East 62nd Street
New York, NY 10065
- Official transcripts from all colleges and universities you attended since graduation from high school. For those students who will not be graduating until after applying, please note that acceptance is contingent upon receipt of proof of graduation. NOTE: Electronic transcripts are not acceptable.
- A premedical advisory committee letter of recommendation, if your college or university has a committee. If your college or university does not have a committee, please provide two letters of recommendation from premedical science faculty members and a recent additional letter of recommendation.
NOTE: These letters may be e-mailed by the institution or letter writers to the NYC office, firstname.lastname@example.org, or forwarded via VirtualEvals or mailed.
To help the Admissions Committee assess the maturity and commitment of the applicants, we have provided space on the application form to describe interests, employment experiences and extracurricular activities.
The office will not advise applicants of any missing documentation. It is your responsibility to make sure that the application is complete.
The New York State/American Program will accept applications from previously unsuccessful candidates if there is additional information for the Committee to assess.
The New York Admissions Office uses the following timetable:
September 6, 2016 – May 10, 2017
Fall 2016 – May, 2017
Feb 2017 – August 2017
|Notification to Applicants|
Deadline for Submission
Applications for 2017—along with all supporting documents—are due by 4 p.m. (EST) on May 10, 2017. There will be no exceptions.
A non-refundable application fee of $100 is required before an application is processed. Payment must be made via PayPal. You will see instructions regarding payment of the fee during the application process.
NOTE: If you have received permission from our New York office to submit your application by mail, you may pay the $100 fee by check or money order, payable to Sackler School of Medicine. Please mail both your application and check to our New York office.
No applications will be reviewed until all supporting documents have been received. No documents will be accepted after the 4 p.m. May 10, 2017 deadline. There will be no exceptions.
The Admissions Office evaluates applications after all supporting documents have been received. We carefully review applications from a comprehensive perspective, taking into account:
- The scope and quality of each student’s academic background
- MCAT Scores
- Premedical committee evaluations and recommendations
- Employment references
- Personal information
All candidates under serious consideration for admission will be interviewed. Interviews are by invitation only and will be arranged by the Admissions Office.
The Admissions Committee reviews the applications of all candidates who have been interviewed. The Committee recommends admission on the basis of an applicant’s estimated potential for the study and practice of medicine—both, as an art and as a science—and overall suitability for the New York State/American Program. The goal of the Admissions Committee is to admit candidates whose attitudes are those of mature and responsible individuals who have thoughtfully considered the many aspects of pursuing a medical education, particularly in a foreign country.
The Admissions Committee accepts students in late February and continues the selection process throughout the spring and summer until the final candidates have been selected. Applicants who are offered admission are asked to respond within two weeks and to forward a non-refundable deposit of $100 to our New York office. This deposit will be credited toward the first semester’s tuition.
NOTE: Students accepted into the New York State/American Program will not be permitted to transfer into the Israeli Program.
Residencies upon graduation are to be done in the United States or Canada.
