Welcome to Mather Pre-med
For Mather seniors and alumni/ae planning to apply to med school, this site will be your guide to the med school application process.
If you're considering med school, the information here will help you make your decision.
Register as a pre-med
- Sign up for the Pre-Med mailing list. All pre-med correspondence after March 27th, 2012, will be sent via this list.
- Then, register for the Mather Pre-Med system. You will be assigned a non-resident pre-med tutor to help answer your questions and allow you to enter all the info needed to compile your Mather House Dean's Letter.
You MUST register if you plan to apply to med school this year! It's the only way we can keep track of who is applying -- and you can't apply without the House's help!
Obviously, registering does not obligate you to apply to med school! It's just a way of letting the House know that you're interested (however vaguely) in the pre-med advising system.
