Connect with Campus Pre-Professional Advising
In addition to an academic advisor who will guide you through your undergraduate degree requirements, a pre-professional advisor can help you with preparing to apply to medical school (and other programs such as dental, pharmacy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, veterinary, etc.).
Advising capabilities from the school of medicine are limited in order to not have a conflict of interest for applicants, but pre-professional advising centers can provide a far deeper dive into everything from application preparation to course sequencing for success. Most centers will also accommodate alumni as well if you have already graduated from your undergraduate studies. From one-on-one appointments to workshops and materials, connecting with this resource is a great asset.
