Applying To Professional School

APPLYING TO PROFESSIONAL SCHOOL

Applicants to health professional graduate school apply at least a year in advance of when they want to start.  Applications open up between April-July. Therefore, summer/early fall is a common time to apply.  For example, apply the summer after your junior year if you would like to start professional school after you graduate the following May.  Application deadlines typically run between October-March.  Many professional schools operate on a rolling admissions schedule, meaning that they begin interviewing and accepting applicants as soon as they start applying.  Therefore, do not wait until the last minute to apply!
 
Most applications will ask for the following types of information:
  • Biographical Information
  • Schools Attended (be prepared to send transcripts)
  • Coursework
  • Work/Activities/Experiences
  • Letters of Evaluation
  • Personal Statement (start drafting this early)
  • Test Scores
  • Schools you are applying to
