Pre-Professional Graduate Programs: Advising and Events

Student learning in classroom

What is Pre-Professional Graduate Programs Advising?

L&S Advising provides advising for undergraduates pursuing: 

  • Medical or health professions programs
  • Law School
  • Masters or PhD programs

We can help with:

  • Exploring and evaluating interests in graduate and professional school programs
  • Carefully considering undergraduate course choices to prepare for graduate and professional school programs
  • Identifying campus resources that provide opportunities and support in preparing for graduate and professional school programs and admissions
  • Providing advice about contacting professors for mentorship, advice, research opportunities, and letters of recommendation 
  • Processing decision-making for selecting graduate program areas and specific school choices

L&S Pre-Professional Graduate Programs Advising is an advising support resource that complements others available on campus, such as the Career Center, the Career Counseling Library, the Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarships, the L&S Mentors Program, the Graduate Diversity Program, and the Graduate Assembly, amongst many other campus resources, along with individual professors and current graduate students.
