Committee Interviews for entering class of 2016 conclude September 30, 2015. Please plan accordingly.

In order to be able to schedule your interview, the premed office must have on file at least 3 letters of recommendation, along with your biographical sketch and personal statement. If you have these items on file, you may call the premedicine advising office at 814-865-7620 or 814-863-3889 to schedule your  interview.
  • Please dress professionally for the interview.
  • Further dates for July through September committee interviews will be announced at a later date (look for updates via this newsletter and on the premedicine subsection of the ECoS website).
  • If you are missing any of these items, you may access the instructions and forms for printing at: http://science.psu.edu/premed/committeeinfo under "Health Professions Committee Interview Packet" (please be aware this links to the entire packet and you may only want to print certain pages).
  • Please keep in mind that letters typically take 2-4 weeks to write after all recommendation letters/other information have been received. 
  • We have also been informed that AMCAS will not be forwarding any verified primary applications to allopathic schools until the last Friday in June.
