Our incoming class will comprise up to ten percent non-Louisiana residents. However, all things being equal, Louisiana residents will receive preference.

Regardless of residency, those whose experiences and backgrounds will add quality, diversity, and value to the class are especially encouraged to apply.

Are all applicants allowed to submit a Secondary Application?

Photographs. Can I submit one? Should I submit one?
Yes, please.

You are encouraged to upload, through the applicant gateway on your AMCAS, a current, appropriate jpeg or PDF image of yourself for identification purposes.

We know it might seem petty to some, but let’s think: your photo introduces you to us and makes a lasting impression, so consider investing in yourself. We aren’t proposing that you have a professional headshot made. We’re only suggesting that you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
