2022 AMCAS® Updates and FAQs

Choose Your Medical School Tool 

Many schools use the AMCAS Choose Your Medical School tool. In February 2022, this tool becomes available within the AMCAS application to applicants who receive an acceptance offer from a participating school.

Important 2022 Choose Your Medical School dates are listed below:

Tuesday, February 22, 2022: “Plan to Enroll” becomes available for accepted applicants to select in the Choose Your Medical School tool, located within the AMCAS application (note: only applicants who receive an acceptance offer from a participating school will be able to see and use the tool)

Monday, May 2, 2022: “Commit to Enroll” becomes available for accepted applicants to select, in addition to “Plan to Enroll,” in the Choose Your Medical School tool, located within the AMCAS application (note: selecting “Commit to Enroll” does not automatically withdraw applicants from other medical schools).

Application and Acceptance Protocols

By Monday, May 2, 2022, per the Application and Acceptance Protocols for Applicants, applicants should narrow their acceptance offers to one, with no limit on the number of alternate list offers they may hold

2022 Cycle Update

The AAMC has been working closely with the medical school admissions and pre-health advisor communities to consider the impacts on applicants due to coronavirus (COVID-19). Medical schools are aware of the many challenges applicants are facing and understand the need to be flexible in their admissions approach during this application cycle. Please review the Medical School Admission Requirements (MSAR) and Participating Medical Schools and Deadlines for updates provided by medical schools. We encourage you to check directly with the medical schools where you are applying for their most current information.


AMCAS only accepts official transcripts mailed by your registrar or electronically submitted by our approved vendors, National Student Clearinghouse and Parchment. Transcripts will not be accepted via email or fax. Please review transcript processing timelines and the transcript FAQs below for more information.

Application Verification

The verification process may take six to eight weeks once your application reaches “Ready for Review.” Your application is “Ready for Review” once your applications is submitted and all required transcripts have been processed. We recommend checking transcript processing timelines and the transcript processing tool for the status of your transcript, as well as our website, for updates on application processing timing.
