Applications and Interviews

The 2019 Genetic Counseling Admissions Match


Applications are submitted and evaluated independently of the Match.

Registered programs may only consider applications from applicants that have registered to participate in the Match.

List of Registered Applicants

An online list of applicants who have registered for the GC Admissions Match will be available by December 14, 2018.

The list will be accessible only to programs that have registered to participate in the Match. The list will be updated in real-time as additional applicants register for the Match. Registered programs should consult the instructions provided to them by NMS by December 14, 2018 for instructions on accessing the list.


In order to submit your Rank Order List(s) by the deadline (April 16, 2019), all your applicant interviews should be completed before that deadline date. You are reminded that you may not make any offers of appointment to, or require any commitments from, any applicants prior to the release of the Match results.

A program may voluntarily inform an applicant as to whether or not it intends to rank the applicant. Similarly, an applicant may voluntarily inform a program as to whether or not they intend to rank the program. However, neither the program nor applicant may ask or prompt the other side for this information.

Furthermore, neither programs nor applicants may disclose information about rank positioning. For example, it is prohibited to make statements like "I will rank you first" or "You are at the top of my list".

Programs that offer more than one track are expected to ask applicants which track(s) the applicants are interested in, and may indicate the track(s) for which the applicants may be considered. However, programs may not solicit information about the position of any track on any applicant's Rank Order List.
