In this office, students are advised by both Barbara Huntington and by the peer advisors pictured on the home page. We will advise you to explore Volunteer Opportunities and Research Opportunities. We can point you towards financial aid and show you other advisors' web pages. Before you take those important tests: improve your reading score! and check out Dr. Eisen's helpful hints.

The Preprofessional Health Advising Office provides many tips for the application process; from the application timeline you will learn when you need to start writing your essay, and when to start bringing your interview skills up to speed before you reach an interview committee: you can even find interview reports from students! Of course, to get to those interviews you'll need letters of recomendation, cheap airfare  and it probably wouldn't hurt to explore some ethical issues. The Preprofessional Health Advising office offers information about a variety of internships (download the internship application here), summer programs, minority programs, and postbac programs
