Resources for Professional School Candidates
Dear Professional School Candidate,
It is spring 2014 and the time has arrived to fill out applications for medical school and other pre-professional schools that you want to start attending in the fall of 2015.
This tends to be a very stressful time of the year, but do not get discouraged! Stay motivated! This web site will provide you with important information and some forms you will need to fill out.
Filling out applications can be tedious. If your materials are organized, you should not have many problems. Here are some hints on how to make your application process simple:
1. Make a folder to keep all your papers in order and in good condition.
2. Always type your information.
3. Always make copies of all application materials before you mail them. You will probably need this information in the future.
4. Notify those who are writing references for you at least one month ahead of time.
5. Most Medical Schools want a recommendation letter from an institutional committee.
If your overall GPA is 3.3 or higher and you want to be evaluated by Southeastern's Medical School Evaluation Committee (MEC) click on the big link to the checklist and forms below.
6. Be aware of deadlines - especially the online "Notice of Intent".
If you need help or if you have any questions, feel free to ask the Delta Omega Alpha officers or the Pre-Medical Advisor.
