Being a Competitive Student for Professional School Candidacy
A competitive Student is a well-rounded
individual, who seeks opportunities and actively pursues growth
both socially and professionally. It is not enough to excel
academically. To be considered for any Professional School,
you will want to focus holistically: academically; scholastically
with honor societies, clubs, and organizations; socially within
your community through service, missions, leadership AND volunteer
work; and professionally through shadowing, work, internship(s),
and related field experience.
Above Average Admission Exams (i.e.,
MCAT, PCAT, DAT, etc)
Since admission/acceptance to
Professional schools are highly competitive, students should strive
to excel on their Professional school admission test. This
starts with strong preparation for the exam.
There are multiple courses of
preparation to aid in this process:
DocFlowers, etc. We recommend in-class
preparation due to the large volume of material that must be
reviewed, as well as the availability of personal assistance in
academic areas that need additional focus.
Students should avoid taking any entrance exam
before prerequisite courses are completed.
highly competitive nature of admission to
Professional Schools, strong, consistent academic performance is a
necessity. All Students should be aware of admission
requirements, including the minimum GPA for the Professional
Schools to which they intend to apply. It is particularly
important that the competitive Student have strong working
knowledge in science and mathematics.
In other words, it is not enough
to regurgitate the information you must also be familiar with the
process and how it is applied.
