Timeline for Medical School Applications

  • Medical and dental school applicants who qualify for the committee letter of recommendation should follow the Application Timeline below.
    • You will apply in the early summer and spend the following year in the interview process. Direct entry students apply at the end of junior year; those taking one glide year apply at the end of senior year.
  • Older alumni who do not qualify for the committee letter are supported through advising appointments, access to all of the applicant resources, and may participate in the HPA Letter Collection Service.
  • Applicants to other health professions are supported through advising appointments and access to resources but are not expected to receive a committee letter of recommendation. HPA is happy to work with applicants to all health professional schools!
