Updates From

AAMC 

The AAMC (Medical School) Application 

UPDATE on APRIL 20

AAMC intend to open the AMCAS application as planned on May 4, and delay transmitting AMCAS applicant data to medical schools by two weeks. This transmission delay – moving from June 26 to July 10 – will give applicants additional time to complete their applications during this rapidly changing situation due to COVID-19.

COVID-19 Related Links and Information

  • As of April 3rd there is no formal consensus among health professions schools' admission committees about the acceptability of Pass/Fail instead of letter grades for the spring, and possibly summer, 2020 semester. Individually, admission offices have started indicating that they understand the extraordinary situation throughout the country and the world. They will be flexible but in different ways. There already are conversations within health professions educational organizations and between individual schools. Many schools would list their plans on their websites- some more flexible, others, less so. A couple of early examples: Harvard Medical SchoolColumbia College of Physicians and SurgeonsUniversity of California San Francisco School of Medicine. We hope there may be a general statement about MD schools altogether. As of early April, AAMC has indicated they are encouraging individual schools to provide information about their grading and MCAT policies in the MSAR, and to add a COVID-19 question on their secondary applications 

    • AAMC- As of March 22 there isn't a publicized plan but anecdotally medical schools are in communication about a potential approach. 

    • AACOM- As of March 22 the Association is surveying the 36 D.O. schools about grade option, MCAT, and application timing policies.

  • ASCO- As of March 23 Optometry schools are approaching the application process individually and with guidance from state governments. 

  • AACP- As of March 23 the Association of Podiatry schools has stated that its 9 institutions would accept online and Pass/Fail grading for spring 2020 courses.
