Genetic Counseling Admissions Match

The Brandeis University genetic counseling program participates in the Genetic Counseling Admissions Match through National Matching Services, which launched in 2018.

The Match was created to establish a process for placing applicants into positions in master's-level genetic counseling programs that are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Genetic Counseling. The Match uses an algorithm that takes into account both applicants' and programs' preferences.

At the conclusion of all interviews during an admissions cycle, applicants and programs each submit ranked lists of programs and applicants, respectively. The binding results of the Match are released to both applicants and programs simultaneously. Applicants who do not match and programs who do not fill their slots can participate in the postmatch process.
