The purpose of pre-professional Advising Tracks is to provide students with the intellectual and academic backgrounds needed to continue on to a professional program such as medical or dental school. Since pre-professional Advising Tracks are not majors, students should choose a major that will prepare them for professional school while also focusing on a pre-professional emphasis.

Once a student identifies a list of desired professional schools, it is recommended they compare that school's prerequisites to what is required in their MSU major plan of study.

Did you know...

Your journey to professional school begins before your freshman year of college. What about you stands head and shoulders above the thousands of other students applying to professional schools? What is your level of community involvement? What type of research have you done? Have you shadowed a professional in your desired field? These are just some of the things committees look at when screening applicants.
