BEFORE YOU APPLY

The most important question to ask yourself at this point are, "Am I really ready to apply? Have I created the most competitive application possible? Would I benefit from an extra year? A post bac program?" Medical and dental schools see almost 5,000 applications a season. They want to read yours once. Make it count!
