|Frequently Asked Questions
|What is the AAMC Virtual Medical School Fair?
It is a virtual event organized by the AAMC to connect interested students with 48 medical schools across the country. At the fair, students can learn about participating schools and chat with admissions professionals.
|How can I attend?
To attend, register prior to the event by visiting: aamcvirtualevents.org. Once the fair opens at 12:00 PM ET on Thursday, stop by the fair and use your registered email address to log in. You can stop by any time, visit multiple time and stay for as long or as little as you wish.
|How does a virtual fair work?
Virtual fairs are modeled on traditional, in-person fairs but are designed to eliminate the expense and hassle of travel. Each participating medical institution has a customized booth with information for attendees. Attendees can browse the booth and decide whether to speak with a representative of the school (via chat).
|How much does registration cost? What is the registration deadline?
Registration is free and attendance is free for students. You can register at any time before or during the fair by visiting: aamcvirtualevents.org.
|If registration is free and open, why should I register in advance?
Advance registration enables participating institutions can schedule the correct number of admissions staff at their booths. Last year, thousands of students registered at the last minute which created support challenges.
