Scheduling Pre-Professional Interviews

If you are a rising junior or rising senior student who is pre-med, pre-vet or pre-dental, you will need to schedule your pre-professional interview.   Pre-Allied or Pre-OT students should check with the schools that they are applying to and find out what their policy is regarding recommendation letters.

Fall semester interviews are scheduled in August, September and October.  Spring semester interviews are scheduled in January, February and March.  There are no exceptions to this schedule.  You must schedule your interview request by September 11, 2015 of the Fall semester and January 22, 2016 of the Spring semester.  Forms submitted after the due date will not be accepted.

Ideally, this interview should be scheduled when you are a junior.  It can still be done as a senior, but preferably in the fall semester.  Links to the forms for fall and spring are shown below.  If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Ragsdale.
