Premedical/ Predental Advisory Committee

Students who are designated as Premedical, Predental, or Prepodiatry may request a committee interview provided that they meet the following GPA requirements:

PM/PD - BCPM* GPA 3.3 or above

The committee interview will result in a committee letter that is submitted, as a valuable part of the students’ evaluation file, to professional schools of interest. Students may apply to any schools they choose. A committee interview and letter are not mandatory for application, but do provide an added benefit to the student.
