It must be in alphabetical order by authors´surnames. In the case of several references from one author, papers that are sole authored should be presented first, followed by those with two authors and then references with three or more authors, respecting the chronological order in each case. If more than one of the articles was published in the same year, a letter should be added after the year to identify the reference (e.g., 2005a,b). Multi-authored works should list the first ten authors followed by “et al.”. Use abbreviated journal names. Examples are given below for literature references. Please do not include the DOIS of the articles. If the work is finally accepted for publication, they will be added by the editorial office staff.
If all components of your application are complete, you can submit by the early acceptance deadline. The early acceptance is non-binding. We have a rolling admissions process with a fixed number of slots each year. It may be to your advantage to apply as early as possible. Applicants with a track record of excellence in academic achievements, MCAT scores, reference letters, research experiences, and volunteer/leadership activities will be considered favorably. A select group of candidates will be invited for interviews starting in September, with notification of acceptances as early as October. Early acceptance applicants who have not been notified of an interview will be rolled into the regular admissions pool for review, and notified of their application status. There is no quota for the number of candidates admitted through early acceptance.
It is recommended that you limit the length to a maximum of 500 words per essay. Please note that we consider plagiarism an egregious breach of conduct and will not consider a plagiarized application for further review, regardless of other attributes or accomplishments. Essays should be written by you, but proofreading by others is encouraged if intended to help polish your work.
