Central Application Services

Pre-health students should apply directly to the central application services listed below and their application materials will be submitted directly to the individual professional schools they choose.  Nearly all schools in the US utilize the central application services.  For the few not listed, see their individual websites for information on how to apply.

We continue to express the importance of early application – meaning as close to the opening date for availability/submission as possible as most schools operate on rolling admissions and are more likely to waitlist a later applicant than offer a seat. Please begin early in your junior or application year organizing your materials, obtaining letters of recommendation, and drafting your personal statement.
