Prepare for Medical School

Your First Choice

Before you can apply to medical school, dental school, or pharmacist school, you usually need to have a bachelor’s degree that fulfills certain requirements. Each health professional school also has their own entrance exams: for medical school, you’ll have to pass the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT); for pharmacy school, the Pharmacy College Admissions Test (PCAT); and for dental school, the Dental Admission Test (DAT).

McNeese’s bachelor’s degrees in biological science and chemistry have special concentrations designed to prepare you with the skills and knowledge you’ll need to qualify to apply for these professional schools and pass entrance exams.

Professional school entrance committees also look highly on undergraduate research experience, and our students frequently work one-on-one with professors in labs, not just shadowing or taking notes, but actively contributing to experimentation and research. This helps you stand out in applications, and you’ll enter into professional schools with many of the skills your peers will still be learning.

And with small student-to-professor ratios at McNeese, you will also be in a better position to get that glowing letter of recommendation from a professor who knows you, your abilities, and your work ethic first-hand.
