44 - How Admissions Committees Review Non-Traditional Students' Applications


In the final episode of this series, Dr. Felix Morales and Mr. Filo Maldonado, admissions deans at the Texas Tech University HSC School of Medicine and the Texas A&M University College of Medicine, respectively, discuss best practices for non-traditional applicants. 

Learn how to tell your story in a meaningful way for review by an admissions committee and focus your efforts to leverage your experiences in the admissions process.

Episode Notes:

  • Connect with a Volunteer Advisor The National Association of Advisors for the Health Professions (NAAHP) provides a free service to applicants who do not have an advisor. Volunteer advisors are available to help applicants.
  • If you are interested in this support service, email volunteer.advisor@naahp.org. Please indicate the undergraduate school that you are attending, or have graduated from and when you graduated. In addition, please indicate which particular health profession you are interested in, and in what State you currently reside. Your questions will be forwarded to a volunteer advisor and that individual will respond to you directly.
