Early acceptance (excluding Med-P applicants) for exceptionally strong candidates may be considered. Well-rounded students with a strong academic record and high MCAT scores may apply for the early decision program by clearly indicating that they want to be considered for this program. Applicants must ensure that all required documents (including official transcripts, official MCAT scores, autobiographical letter as well as three reference letters) are sent immediately to the admissions office.

Once the file is complete, the Admissions Committee will review it and a decision will be made within ten days as to whether early interviews will be offered. Successful candidates who accept our offer of admission to the Faculty of Medicine at McGill must withdraw their application(s) to, or acceptance(s) from, other medical schools in order to maintain their accepted status at McGill.
