If you attended the APP sessions (formerly known as HSAC), gathered materials, and had a Pre Application Interview (PAI) in a prior year but never applied through the application service, nor completed the process of having your materials sent to health professional schools, you are considered a continuing applicant. In order to obtain a preapplication interview, the procedure that you will follow in this application cycle will depend on where you left off in the process of applying and the following eligibility criteria.

  1. The applicant must meet all the following deadlines:
    • March 1st: Deadline for notifying the Careers in Health and Medicine Office to reopen your application for matriculation in the following year; gain access to Moodle; and complete the Intent to Apply Form.
    • April 1st: Deadline for submitting APP preapplication interview materials (preapplication profile, personal and short essays, activities overview and list, transcripts, SIP summary or abstract, and photo) and scheduling the PAI.

Between the time that you first contact the office and the time of your preapplication interview, you are strongly encouraged to set up an additional appointment with Careers in Health and Medicine Office to determine what others steps you may need to take in the application process. Please remember that there are no GPA or entrance exam (MCAT, DAT, GRE) cut-offs to participate in APP; however, students are strongly encouraged to engage in the APP process when they feel confident that they are a competitive applicant.

Any K student or alum can take advantage of the Letter Collection Service, provided that the CAS for your intended professional program accepts this type of document. The letter collection service compiles individual letters along with a brief cover letter describing K College along with prior applicant pool data. In order to utilize this service, applicants will need to request individual letters of recommendation be sent on their behalf via the website to the Careers in Health and Medicine Office. Once an applicant has been notified that all letters have been received, they must complete a file completion form which requires the upload of a copy of a submitted primary application(s) as well as uploading CAS letter request form(s). See Letter Collection Service for more details. 

We enjoy guiding you through this process and supporting your applications, and we hope that you will keep us informed of all developments and decisions throughout your application cycle.
