While the sequence of scheduled courses varies from
student to student and from profession to profession, the following three-year
schedule is representative, and the fourth year of college is generally used to
complete the requirements for a baccalaureate degree.
Pre-medical advisors make specific recommendations on the
sequence of courses to each student according to individual needs. While minimum course requirements for all the
professional schools are similar, course requirements do vary from one
professional school to another, so it is essential for you to check the
specific course requirements for the professional schools that interest you.
Advisors also help prepare you to meet specific
admissions requirements of the professional schools in which you are interested.
Admission to professional schools is
generally based on overall GPA, GPA in required courses, an admissions test,
recommendations, exposure to the profession, and in most cases an interview.
The average GPA of students admitted is almost always better than 3.0; in most
cases it is much better than 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.
