Creighton is alive and kicking

Discussion in 'Pre-Medical - MD' started by Warren P. Cheswick, Sep 27, 2001.

  1. Just got secondary information from Creighton today via e-mail...I'll post the e-mail since I know a lot of you are applying and wondering what in the hell is going on in Nebraska (I'm a Nebraska resident but attend school in Texas).

    Here's the e-mail I received.

    We are pleased to acknowledge the receipt of your AMCAS application for
    admission to Creighton University School of Medicine. You will note that
    our secondary application is web-based this year, but we know that it is
    simple and short. Please complete the application as soon as possible so
    that the Committee on Admissions can expeditiously evaluate your
    completed application.

    For access to our Supplementary Application for Fall 2002, please visit
    the Medical Admissions web site at and follow the links
    to the Secondary Application.

    You will receive an acknowledgment letter via U.S. Postal Service within
    the next few days. Included with your letter will be additional
    instructions and information on the application process at Creighton
    University School of Medicine.

    This year, in particular, because the admissions year is beginning a
    little later than usual, we will rely heavily upon electronic mail for
    communication with you. Last year, we tested email invitations to
    interview and communications, and were very satisfied with the speed,
    efficiency and accuracy of email. Therefore, you will receive only two
    pieces of written correspondence from our office this application year.
    Your acknowledgment letter, which is soon to come, and the final
    disposition of your application. All other correspondence between now
    and your final disposition will be done via email.

    Two things are extremely critical about the use of email: (1) it is
    very important to check your email often, preferably daily and (2) our
    files must reflect any address, telephone, and email address changes at
    all times throughout the application process.

    The following are special circumstances, which should be read
    carefully. Act upon only those which apply to you.

    If you have answered "yes" to the question 'Do you consider yourself a
    Disadvantaged Applicant?' on your AMCAS application, the Committee would
    like you to be aware of the following policies:
    1. The Committee on Admissions has not defined the term 'disadvantaged'
    as it applies to admission to Creighton University School of Medicine.
    2. The Committee does not require supporting documentation of applicants
    who consider themselves disadvantaged.
    3. Committee members will consider your statement (if you choose to
    submit one when your completed application is evaluated.)
    4. Lack of a statement will not detract from your application.
    If you wish to submit a statement concerning your answer, please make
    sure that your name and AMCAS ID Number appear on the statement and send
    it, via email or US Postal Service, to our office. You may attach other
    information that you wish the Committee on Admissions to review
    concerning this issue. Please be as brief and concise as possible.

    If you have previously matriculated at another School of Medicine,
    please note that it is the policy of the Committee on Admissions for the
    Creighton University School of Medicine to consider such applications
    only when accompanied by a letter of eligibility to re-enroll at your
    previous School of Medicine. In order for your application to be
    processed by the Committee, please submit this verification to our

    The Committee will not hold final review of applicants who have taken
    the August MCAT until those scores are received. Please notify this
    office if you do not plan to include this test score in your final
    application review. On that note, it is not the policy of the Committee
    on Admissions for the Creighton University School of Medicine to
    consider for admission to the freshman class any applicant who has not
    presented MCAT scores from examination taken within three years of the
    class in which the applicant is requesting to matriculate. Therefore,
    it will not be possible for any applicant to proceed who has not
    submitted MCAT scores.

    How many seats will be open at the School of Medicine this year? The
    good news for applicants is that 110 seats are open! During the past
    two years, this was not the case as the students under the Guaranteed
    Admission Program occupied about half of the class. No Longer! This
    year, only 8 seats are filled under the Guarantee, leaving 110 seats
    open at this point.

    We hope that the above information will encourage you to proceed with
    your application to the Creighton University School of Medicine. If you
    have additional questions or inquires regarding the status of your
    application, please contact us through our web site
    ( or
    via email at [email protected]

    Best wishes for a successful year, and thanks for considering Creighton
    as your medical school.

    Assistant Dean for Admissions
    Associate Professor, Pathology

    I'm glad you got a blank screen's reassuring. I sent them an e-mail 20 minutes ago, so hopefully they can fix it tomorrow.
