Pre-Health Advisory Committee (PAC)

Traditionally, many medical or dental programs across the country encourage a "committee letter" of evaluation. At OSU, this is known as the Pre-Health Advisory Committee (PAC) Interview and Letter of Evaluation service. While not required for a professional application, a PAC evaluation and letter is highly recommended for many professional school applications in medicine (specifically physician) or dentistry. 

Please plan accordingly for your appropriate application cycle for PAC consideration based-upon the eligibility requirements.

PAC Timeline (applications open in October, workshop in October, applications due in December, review process in January, interviews Feb. - May, letters sent out in July)
