Preparing to Apply

Steps for individuals preparing to apply to enter health profession school in the fall of 2024:

1) Enroll in our Pre-Health 101 Blackboard page

2) Go to the 2025 Applicants page found in the Pre-Health 101 Blackboard site and complete the 2025 Application Module.

3.) Watch the 2025 Application Meeting recording (if you did not attend live).

4.) Review all the information below, the Instructions for Completing the Portfolio, and FAQs for Current Applicants

5). Submit the 2025 Portfolio of Accomplishments and Reflections by January 3, 2024 by 5pm ET. Even individuals who have previously submitted a Portfolio must submit a 2025 Portfolio by the stated deadline.

If you were a 2023 applicant to health profession school and missed the 2024 Portfolio deadline, please email preprof@bu.edu with your name, BU ID, and confirmation that you were a 2023 applicant to receive access to the 2024 Portfolio of Accomplishments and Reflections. 

6. If you have any questions/concerns after you have reviewed these resources, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with a pre-health advisor via Handshake.


 

Note for alumni who are not yet in our 2025 database:  It is imperative that you request that we change your year of application.  Please email this information to the Preprofessional Advising Office at preprof@bu.edu. By doing so, you will ensure that you receive important email notifications from us. If you prefer to use a personal email address, we recommend you updated your preferences to ensure your BU emails are forwarded to your personal email address as we send email notifications to our applicants’ BU email addresses.
