Between Labor Day and early March, approximately 25 percent of applicants are invited for an interview. The interview day consists of one session with a faculty member who is a member of the Admissions Committee. Applicants also have lunch and tour the facilities with a current medical student. About 15 percent of interviewed applicants are accepted, with notification occurring in early March. A wait-list is also created at this time. Wait-listed applicants may send additional information to update their files.

Admissions Requirements: One year each of English, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry are required for admission along with the MCAT. For those students who have taken the MCAT more than once, the most recent scores are weighed most heavily. Thus, there is no advantage in withholding scores. Columbia does not admit students on a rolling basis. Therefore, submitting MCAT scores from the fall of the admission year does not place applicants at a disadvantage.
