A Misericordia University education is excellent preparation for advanced studies to obtain a professional degree in law, medicine, dentistry, optometry, physician's assistant, or veterinary medicine.
The pre-professional programs at Misericordia University offer high-quality, rigorous course work that prepares graduates for their next level of education. The faculty in these programs provide support for students and alumni seeking to apply to a variety of professional programs. We work holistically with students at all stages of their career exploration to encourage self-reflection and stress the importance of intellectual development, personal integrity, and professionalism.
What Are Med Schools and Law Schools Looking For?
Neither medical schools nor law schools require any specific undergraduate major in order to apply. However, each school has specific requirements and completing the preparation for these schools requires careful planning during your undergraduate studies. During your time at Misericordia, you will work closely work with a faculty advisor who specializes in preparing students for this type of professional education. Your faculty advisor takes the time to get to know you, your skills and interests, and works with you to maximize your undergraduate experience and ensure you have the necessary course work and opportunities for a successful application. You will join the many alumni who declare that their Misericordia University education prepared them well for their advanced studies and who have gone onto successful careers in their professions.
