The purpose of the Pre-Professional
Evaluating Committee is to assist qualified students to gain
entry into health related, primary care provider, professional
schools. First, the committee will provide the
student with information on professional schools, the application
process, the pre-professional examinations (MCAT, DAT, OCAT,
etc.) and general academic advisement. Specific program
advisement should be obtained from the faculty members of
the undergraduate student's major department.
Second, the student will be
evaluated by the Committee as part of the application process.
The evaluation will be based on the individual evaluation
forms provided to the Committee by the student's professors.
The student will also be called before the committee for a
personal interview. After the interview, the Committee
will send a copy of the composite evaluation to each professional
school designated by the applicant. Professional schools
look at composite evaluations as a consensus of the faculty
and, therefore, provide a broad-based evaluation of the applicant.
The evaluation covers such qualifications and characteristics
as intellectual capacity, personality, character, emotional
stability, aptitude and motivation, extra-curricular activities,
strengths and weaknesses, and overall scholarship. The
evaluation will contain excerpts of the opinions of the student's
professors as they appear on the individual evaluation forms.
It should be emphasized that
the Committee is not another hurdle in the application process.
It is, in fact, an important aid in helping the student plan
a career and gain entry into professional school.
