"On behalf of the Admissions Committee at MCW Medical School, please accept our appreciation for your interest in MCW and patience as your application was reviewed.

Interview invitations were extended to applicants throughout the cycle considering the results of a holistic application review and application completion date. At this time, we have completed a sufficient number of interviews to enroll a class of the desired size and quality for the entering class of 2019 at all of our campus locations. Since we were unable to offer you the opportunity to interview, your application has now been withdrawn.

Please know that the deliberations of the Committee’s review of your application are closed and confidential. If you plan to re-apply to MCW Medical School and have questions in preparation for re-application, you may contact the Office of Admissions to set up a meeting beginning in May.

We wish you the best in your future endeavors."



This is my second cycle applying... Last cycle I never got off of 2 waitlists, now I'm sitting on only 1 with 3 schools left to hear back from
Did anyone else notice the email says "entering class of 2019"?
I received this same email verbatim on March 4, 2019.
...What year is it?!

Sorry if this has already been asked, I read through a couple pages but didn't want to look through all 22. Is MCW Milwaukee required in-class attendance lecture or can you watch recorded lectures? Thanks in advance to anyone who responds!

During the interview they said nonmanditory and they record all lectures. Students routinely said they hardly ever went to lectures.

Lectures are recorded, and live streamed to the satellite campuses so those students can ask questions, for the basic science curriculum.

Interviewed 3/6. Post interview rejection. Oh well. So much for me deciding to interview over withdrawing my application when they straight up said I'd be interviewing for a waitlist spot at best.

Interviewed 3/6 and Accepted. Do you know when they start sending financial aid packets? I am out of state and love the school, its just so expensive compared to my state schools and I hope they could help on that end
IIRC, fin aid is early summer. No sooner than may.

Congratulations to everyone who has been accepted! I'm an M1 at Milwaukee and I'm happy to answer any questions to help you decide if MCW is a good fit for you - or if you just want more information!

Did anyone see the new US News and World Report rankings for medical schools? MCW just became unranked for both research and primary care, when it was ~54th in research and ~63rd in primary care last year. I know rankings don’t matter much, but I’m sad this happened! They change the metrics every year based on peer reviews, but surely they should’ve received some feedback.

I just did more research and it seems like schools are increasingly not participating in the USNR on purpose by not submitting information to them. On the other hand, if it says “Rank Not Published,” it means that the school DID provide enough info, but they just didn’t rank high enough to have their ranking published.

Unranked means that MCW didn’t provide info to US News that allows them to be ranked. This is distinct from Rank Not Published which means they were ranked but didn’t make the ‘cut’. They could opt out for a variety of reasons, so I wouldn’t worry about it. The problem with US News is that the arbitrary measurements they use to decide rank are heavily weighted towards things that really don’t matter- total NIH/research funding, percentage of class going into primary care, etc. A school with a ton of funding might give students limited guidance on connecting you with labs, or the PIs might try to avoid taking on med students. It’s better to talk to actual students about their ability to get connected with good research experiences as that is the final goal once you matriculate. The metric that DOES matter to a degree is residency director ratings, which is a small factor in the final score. You can see these ratings, but you probably have to buy the US News subscription or find a post where someone lists the data on reddit/sdn. I highly doubt MCW changed much for this because established schools that have shown trustworthiness over a long period of time generally score the highest and (unless there was some big scandal I’m unaware of) this kind of metric wont drop significantly year to year. MCW typically scores around the top 40-50ish for residency director ratings so I wouldn’t worry much. If you choose to go here, you’ll be going to a good school.

Does anyone who has been recently accepted to MCW know why it’s not listed as one of the schools under “choose your medical school?”

This is a financial aid question: my financial aid checklist is complete except the citizenship verification which I was told we don’t need to receive our offer, so when will this offer arrive?
