College of Medicine and Life Sciences - MD Admissions

Early Decision Program

The Early Decision Program is available to Ohio residents only.

Medical School applicants are encouraged to apply to the University of Toledo College of Medicine Early Decision Program if they feel the University of Toledo is their first choice school. We interview all applicants who present competitive credentials (please refer to average GPA and MCAT scores listed in the Class Profile). The decision for acceptance is determined by the academic and personal qualifications demonstrated in the AMCAS application, Secondary MD Online Application, letters of recommendation and interview.

To apply for the Early Decision Program you must select "Early Decision" in the Application Type category on your AMCAS application. In this program, a student must apply exclusively to the University of Toledo College of Medicine, with the understanding that if accepted by the College of Medicine, the student will matriculate here. The AMCAS application must be completed by August 1st and the secondary must be presented to the Admissions Office by September 1.  A final decision by the school will be made no later than October 1. If not accepted by the University of Toledo College of Medicine, the student is free to seek admission to other schools after October 1.

While the application is open to all students, the Early Decision Program encourages students from under-served rural or urban areas, first-generation college students, graduates from low-income high schools, students who are financial aid eligible, or who have a strong interest of practicing primary care medicine in Northwest Ohio.
