When considering candidates for admission, health professional schools consider applicants holistically.  Admissions decisions may be based upon their assessment of you in various areas of competency, one of which is academic performance.  Your academics can forecast how well you will perform in a professional program, and may even predict if you will complete the program of your choice. Additionally, your academics tell admissions representatives about your intellectual curiosity, problem-solving skills, and your ability to manage a rigorous course load with multiple demands on your time.
  • While it is important to demonstrate your proficiency in the sciences, you should also be aware of keeping a balanced schedule to ensure your best academic performance. 
  • If you find yourself struggling to choose a major, needing academic support, searching for new study skills, longing to enrich your experiences abroad, or concerned about your Honor and Conduct status at Emory, see an advisor in Pre-Health Advising to discuss your concerns.
