AUSTIN - With 1,000 applications and more coming in daily for just 50 seats at the University of Texas’ Dell Medical School, a preliminary stamp of approval came just in time.

In a celebration overlooking the skeletons of four new buildings, UT officials announced that the medical school has received preliminary accreditation, a milestone that will allow the school to start recruiting students.

The school’s first four-year class of medical students is scheduled to enter in summer 2016, and just before the students graduate in 2020, officials anticipate the school receiving full accreditation.

“We may get 3,000 applications” before the cut-off later this year, Dean Clay Johnston said in an interview.

Halfway to that goal, the school must pass another hurdle to earn provisional accreditation.
