One of the most important functions the Pre-Health Professions Advisory Committee performs is the drafting of a recommendation letter about you for the professional schools to which you apply.In order for the Committee to get to know you as well as possible and to prepare you for visits to professional schools, you are required to interview with the committee in the Spring semester before you send applications to the professional schools. Normally, interviews are scheduled during the final exam period each Spring semester. In order to request an interview, submit your portfolio to the Chair of the Pre-Health Professions Advisory Committee ( Dr Neil Glagovich), no later than April 15th of the spring semester that the interview takes place.
At your interview, the committee members will be present to ask questions about your academic work, your interest in the desired field and your knowledge about the field. You should give them any information that will assist them in preparation of your recommendation letter. If you have community service, spent years in the military or invented a better mousetrap, please let the Committee know, even if it does not appear immediately applicable to your medical career. In many cases, your life experiences reflect leadership abilities, commitment, or intellectual prowess that is different from your academic record. The interview is not to judge you, but rather to collect information about you that will help the Committee write the best possible letter and to prepare you for interviews at professional schools.
