Pre-Med March Madness is heading your way!

Interested in applying to professional schools in medical fields? Check out Pre-Med March Madness

These workshops sponsored by BU’s pre-professional committee are just what the doctor ordered:

Sophomores and Juniors who are interested in careers in various medically-related professions medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, chiropractic, optometry, dentistry, etc.) are strongly encouraged to attend the Pre-Med March Madness workshops to be held at 5:00 p.m. at ABLE in the Columbia Living Learning Community Room on these Mondays:

March 2:   The Application Process. The Pre-Professional Advisory Committee will guide you through the rigors of applying to professional schools, including AMCAS and AADSAS. Students will share their experiences with the admissions process.
March 16:  Creating an Appropriate Resume. Sure you have a resume, but is it appropriate for your application? Come to this workshop with a print-out of your re- sume for break-out sessions of peer and advisor review. It is OK if the resume is kind of rough. Sophomores are especially encouraged to attend.
March 23:  Telling Your Story in the Personal Statement. Writing about yourself is probably the most difficult part of the application. For that reason, applicants tend to procrastinate in
writing this important document.  Come to this workshop with a printed rough draft of your personal statement, or at least some ideas on paper for break-out sessions of peer and advisor review.  Juniors are especially encouraged to come.
