Undergraduate Pre-Professional Advisement
The Brooklyn Campus offers students one-on-one, personal guidance as they pursue a professional career in medicine, osteopathy, dentistry, podiatry, optometry, chiropractic or veterinary medicine. This includes academic advisement and all of the help they need during the application process.
In order to take full advantage of the opportunity offered by such advisement, students are encouraged to register with the Pre-Professional Evaluating Committee as early as possible in their academic careers. In addition, students must maintain a high grade-point average and fulfill all of the pre-professional science requirements before the year in which they intend to apply.
There are many requirements for acceptance into professional schools. Students are strongly advised to consult the appropriate sources of information for whatever profession they may wish to pursue. It is best to do this background research early in one’s academic career in order to avoid unpleasant surprises at a later date.
Once a student registers with the pre-professional office, a file will be opened for them. This file contains all of the faculty evaluations and extracurricular interests of the student, which will be used to compile composite evaluation. We will send out up to 25 evaluations. A charge shall be made for all applications beyond 25.
