The Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV practices rolling admissions. This means that all interviewed applicants stay in active review until the cohort is filled and the alternate list is finalized. Similarly, this means that an applicant who interviews early in the cycle may not see an offer of admissions until later in the season.
