The best time to apply to health professions school is when you are ready and strongest. 

Ask yourself the some of these questions:

  • Am I academically prepared?  Is my GPA competitive?
  • Have I taken the appropriate test (MCAT, PCAT, etc.) and am I satisfied with my score?
  • Do I have strong letters of recommendation?
  • Do I have clinical and research experiences?
  • Am I ready to be in school for the next 2-8 years?
