Preparing for Application to Professional Schools

Building a competitive application to professional school

Most professional schools receive far more applications from prospective students than they have room for in the next the entering class. Every year, well-qualified students are turned down by professional schools despite having completed all basic requirements for admission.

Applying to professional school has become an extremely competitive process, requiring that students go above and beyond the basic requirements for admission. At the Office of Medical Professions Advisement believe that being a competitive candidate encompasses multiple facets of both the student's personal and professional life. To set yourself apart from all others vying for acceptance into your preferred professional school, it is crucial to focus on more than one aspect of your academic, personal, and career development.
