I spoke to a parent the other day who had questions about applying to BS/MD programs. I haven’t been accepting new seniors for many months because I am completely booked but I was happy to answer some general questions.
The problem, however, was that the student had not yet applied to any programs. While most college applications aren’t due until the end of December or early January, BS/MD applications are mostly due between November 1 and December 1. If you don’t get your application in on time, you will not be considered.
It is obviously too late for this application season, but for those of you considering applying to BS/MD programs in future years, keep these early deadlines in mind. This is one of the many reasons that I encourage those students who are considering working with me to get an early start on the process. 9th and 10th grade are not too early.
