Every health professional school has a centralized application service and it opens ~one year prior to matriculation. For example, if you apply to a health professional school in June 2018, you will matriculate in August 2019.

Primary Application

Primary application checklist:

  • Academic transcripts
  • Standardized test scores
  • Letters of Evaluation/Recommendation
  • Personal Essay
  • Pay Fee (usually larger fee for the first school and smaller fee for each additional school)
  • Should submit as early as possible as most schools have rolling admissions (fill the spots ASAP)

Secondary/Supplemental Application

  • Questions vary - may ask specific questions on your personal history, why you want to attend their institution, examples of a strong service orientation, what your plans are for your gap year, etc.
  • Submit ASAP (within two weeks)
