Application Process

Applying to health professions school requires much attention to detail. Our goal is to guide students and alumni through the process of deciding when to apply, how to put together the strongest and most comprehensive application, and how to best navigate the admissions cycle.

The timeline for medical and dental school is about 16 months. Students hoping to begin medical or dental school directly after graduation, will begin the Committee process as early as Winter semester of junior year. Those who decide to take a “glide year” between undergraduate and health professions school will begin the application process in the Winter of their senior year. Still others may return as alums to utilize the Medical Studies Committee and the services of the Bates Career Development Center.

The 2017 Medical School Application Process begins on January 1st. Please visit: 2017 Applying to Medical or Dental School for more information.
