    Dean's Certification Post Acceptance?

    Which medical schools require a Dean's certification after acceptance? I do not see a definite list around. I would like to have them ready after acceptance as my school is really slow in processing these forms after COIVD. Thank you!

    Deferring an acceptance?

    If your school allowed you to defer acceptance for a year, no questions asked, would you? I ask this because after a stressful year, application cycle, and gap year job, I'm feeling burnt out. I 100% want to be a doctor, but I am also interested in pursuing other interests and traveling for...

    Should I be communicating with schools?

    Do the majority of successful applicants send letters of interest, updates, call the admissions office of the schools they are interested in/waitlisted at? I have not done any of that this cycle and have seen many people on SDN regularly emailing/calling admissions and staying in close...

    Graduating in 5 years

    Hi everyone, Do medical schools see it as something negative if I graduate in my undergrad institution in 5 years as opposed to 4 due to taking lighter classes per semester intentionally? Edit: This is my first time using SDN. So glad to join this community!

    Hey people, Do most dental programs formally reject people they aren't interested in? Or do the vast majority just leave you 'under review' until the cycle is over? Thanks

    Open house for programs that do not interview

    I have been accepted into a DPT program that does not hold interviews; however, they do hold open houses monthly. I plan on attending a session to get a feel for the program before I make any decisions, but I was wondering if there were certain things I should look out for during the open house?

    Error on Background Check

    I had to fill out a Certiphi background screening after acceptance and it came back as expected except it said I had an "alias" (it's my name but spelled incorrectly). There's no criminal history listed for it, so I'm guessing this isn't an issue, just wanted to see if anyone had experienced...
