Early Decision Timeline

2019-2020 Early Decision Admissions Timeline

An early decision application requires that you apply only to the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. If accepted, you must matriculate to Pritzker. If you apply Early Decision and are not accepted, you may then apply to other medical schools.

Due to the unique nature of this program and the abbreviated application timeline, you must be approved by the Office of Admissions to apply through the Early Decision Program. To be approved, you must send a resume/CV, transcript (unofficial is acceptable), and your MCAT score to pritzkeradmissions@bsd.uchicago.edu. In your email, state that you are interested in applying to Pritzker as an Early Decision applicant. Our admissions office will be in touch with you via email regarding your approval for the ED program.

If you are applying Early Decision, you cannot apply to the MSTP or MeSH programs. However, once enrolled in the MD program at Pritzker, students may apply to additional degree programs in science, humanities, social sciences, law, or business.
