Pre-Professional Programs

The Eastern Kentucky University Center for Pre-Professional Advising (CPPA) assists students interested in pursuing careers in law, medicine, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, optometry, dentistry, or as a physician assistant.

If you are interested in pursuing admission to a professional school after graduation, you will meet with a CPPA advisor regularly to receive ongoing feedback about developing your academic and extracurricular experiences for application and admission to professional school.

Topics of discussion may include:

  • Completing the academic prerequisites for admission to professional programs
  • Taking advantage of extracurricular opportunities such as volunteer activities, job shadowing, internships, undergraduate research, and study abroad
  • Exploring summer pre-professional programs and opportunities
  • Preparing for professional-school admission tests (LSAT, MCAT, OAT, DAT, PCAT, GRE)
  • Requesting letters of recommendation
  • Enhancing personal statements and interview skills
  • Navigating the application process
