Re-Applicant

If you are re-applying to the University of Minnesota Medical School, please review some helpful information below.

University of Minnesota Reapplication Policy:

  • Three complete AMCAS applications, per applicant, may be submitted to the Admissions Committee.  A complete application consists of the AMCAS application and the U of MN supplemental application, as well as a final Admissions Committee decision.
  • After the third attempt, subsequent applications will not be considered.
  • Each program is considered separate and this policy applies to the Twin Cities MD, Duluth MD, and MD/PhD programs individually.

Addtional helpful information:

Though you can submit a second application immediately after your first application, you may want to consider waiting a year if you feel you need more experiences that help you demonstrate the essential and desired qualities of an ideal medical student.  For some individuals, applying immediately may be the right option especially if you have spent your initial application year preparing for the possibility of having to reapply a second time.  The Admissions Committee expects to see differences and improvements in subsequent applications. You are also required to submit updated letters of recommendation; however, you may use previous recommenders. 

Please use our applicant self-assessment form to help better understand your current application and what you may need to do to improve it for the future. We will schedule feedback appointments with applicants December through July.
