just thought i'd let u know. good luck. To: AMCAS Applicants to Yale From: Office of Admissions Re: Yale Supplemental Application & Technical Problems with AMCAS 2002 We are writing to AMCAS applicants who have indicated their intention to apply to the Yale University School of Medicine. We would like to invite you to visit our web site to learn more about Yale and to submit your Yale Supplemental Application on line at http://info.med.yale.edu/medadmit. You may submit the Supplemental Application at any time, either before or after submitting your AMCAS application. We do not ?screen? AMCAS applications. We are also writing to bring to your attention our ?Transition Procedures,? which have been developed in response to technical problems with the AMCAS 2002 application. By sending us a printed copy of your AMCAS application (and unofficial copies of your MCAT scores and college transcript) and submitting your Yale Supplemental Application on line, you will enable us to avoid long start-up delays and move ahead with the evaluation process before we receive an official transmission from AMCAS. Detailed instructions for these Transition Procedures will be found in our on-line Supplemental Application at http://medapps05.med.yale.edu/ows-msa/Transition.htm. Please note that applicants who choose to expedite the Yale admissions process via these Transition Procedures must also submit their on-line AMCAS application. Initial evaluations and (if AMCAS transmission delays persist into the fall) even interview invitations can be based on the unofficial documents that you send to us, but final decisions will not be made until official AMCAS applications have been received. Our deadlines are October 15 for the AMCAS application and November 15 for the Yale Supplemental Application. All other application material, including letters of recommendation, must also be sent by November 15. Late applications will not be considered, and it is in your best interest to apply as early as possible. This is an exciting time in the history of medicine and an exciting time to be at Yale, where you will find a commitment to excellence that defines everything we do and establishes this School as a national and international leader in research, education, and patient care. Through our admissions process, we are seeking to enroll a talented and diverse class of students from every segment of modern society ? men and women who have the maturity, intelligence, energy, and compassion to grow into the kind of physician-leaders we strive to educate. Thank you for applying to the Yale University School of Medicine. We look forward to receiving your completed application. Please let us know if you have questions.
