Health Sciences Advising Introduction

We know that applying to health professional schools is a daunting task and takes an entire year to do. We also know that to be a good applicant you must start early in your college career to make sure you are a truly qualified applicant. We have tried to compile information here that will be useful to you both in the beginning of your time here and as you get closer to applying. Please also remember that all of the counselors in our office are trained Health Science Advisors. You can come in and see us at any time to talk about your application and strategy.
