Pre-Medical Program

Early Decision Program

Loma Linda and many other medical schools have an early decision program (EDP). The EDP allows an applicant to secure an acceptance in a participating school by October 1st, which then affords the applicant sufficient time to apply to other schools if not accepted through the EDP.

If you decide to participate in the EDP and are accepted, you may not apply and be accepted to any other medical school. Students who qualify for early acceptance are relatively few and typically have very good qualifications. If you are interested in the EDP contact your pre-med advisor for further information.
