IMPORTANT DATES REGARDING ACCEPTANCE OFFERS:
April 15 Deadline Requirement - As stated in the AAMC Acceptance Protocols, BCM requires that applicants hold no more than three acceptances after April 15. It is the applicant’s responsibility to notify us should any extenuating circumstances arise that would prevent them from complying with this requirement.
April 30 Deadline Requirements – Accepted applicants must pay the $300 tuition deposit, sign and return the Baylor acknowledgement form, and select 'plan to enroll' via AMCAS 'Choose Your Medical School' tool. At this point, applicants must withdraw from any other institutions that they have received acceptance offers to. Failure to meet the deadline requirements by April 30 may result in rescission of your acceptance to Baylor College of Medicine. It is the applicant’s responsibility to notify the Admissions Office should any extenuating circumstances arise that would prevent them from complying with this requirement.
