Trinity School of Medicine is an institution with many goals, but one of them is about maintaining academic momentum.
Because of this, Trinity offers rolling admissions to its incoming students, providing January, May, and September start terms. Each has its strengths (for example, while Trinity’s class sizes are far smaller than other medical schools, January in particular is limited to 20-25 students to create an optimal learning environment for those that thrive on closer interactions). September is for students who are gifted, eager students but, for whatever reason, just didn’t end up in their first choice school in the US and Canada.
A 2016 Start Is Still Available to You
This is not to say that Trinity is just a “plan b” option, though. The quality of the education and the student culture of service stand out for past graduates as critical factors in shaping the type of doctor they eventually became in their residency and practice. Trinity carefully selects for personality (famously evaluating “the whole person” and not just the transcript) when considering admissions, which is why the interview is so important and, by many schools’ standards, very early.
On Interviews, Timing, and the Intersection of Value
Medical school interviews are a major component of the admissions process and should be considered a significant milestone by prospective students. Excellent doctors are individuals with compassion, drive, and the desire to make a difference. Characteristics like these are difficult to assess from grade point averages and MCAT scores alone. At Trinity, we endeavor to personally meet with as many qualified individuals as possible as part of our holistic approach to admissions. To facilitate this, we send admissions team leaders to cities across the U.S. and Canada to meet one-on-one with prospective students, in person and close to home (or school).
By completing an interview request, you are signaling your interest in meeting with our team to discuss your candidacy for our MD program. Interviews enable students to demonstrate their personal strengths and how it balances with their academic and extracurricular experience. It’s a remarkable opportunity for both sides to ask questions and gauge the fit between the goals and objectives of the interviewee and the learning environment and approach at Trinity.
The Trinity Advantage
Trinity is an institution dedicated to its culture of welcome and support. Should you be chosen to take part, bring your best self, but also come armed with the confidence and comfort of knowing that the admissions team has the same interest in your future success that you carry to the meeting, and they want nothing more than to see you become a great doctor and proud Trinity alum.
