This page is for UA students and alumni applying to medical, dental, or optometry school for the entering class of 2018.

You will NOT be allowed to schedule your committee interview until your application file is complete. A completed application contains the following:

  • ALL of your recommendation letters
  • Your completed UA Pre-Application (which includes a draft of your personal statement)
  • A professional photo of yourself

These items are all due by March 31, 2017. No exceptions.

Committee Interviews

Our office will conduct committee interviews  April 24–May 12, 2017. These are our ONLY interview dates for the 2018 application season.  In order to be considered for the interviews, you MUST have attended one of the three Mandatory Applicant Meetings and submitted your UA application packet by March 31, 2017 at 4:45 p.m.

If you do not meet the qualifications for a committee interview but would like for our office to send your letters (with no committee letter) we will still do so. If this is your choice you will still have to fill out the UA Pre-Application and submit the appropriate information so that we can upload your letter packet (please see individual sections for required information).

We are excited to work with each of you! If you have any questions please email prehealth@ua.edu. Cheers to a successful application season!

Thank you,
Health Professions Advising Office
