Good to Know
- We do not interview at Cornell.
If you apply in the regular cycle through the VMCAS:
- Pay only the VMCAS application fee. There is no supplemental application fee.
- IMPORTANT: VMCAS does NOT accept transcripts that are sent by the student or a third party. They have to be sent by the colleges or universities where you took courses. Ask the colleges or universities where you took your classes to send your transcript EARLY, well before the application deadline.
