What does it mean to be a pre-professional student at the University of Alabama? This path means choosing a major that speaks to your interests, performing well in the classroom, pursuing opportunities that will build your soft skills and allow you to interact with people, and regularly meeting with your pre-professional advisor from the beginning of freshman year.

As a medical school applicant, you will need to shine in your science courses while committing yourself to shadowing, research, and service.

For a law school applicant, you must develop excellent reading, writing, analytical, and communication skills in your courses and showcase on your resume your ability to collaborate and empathize with people unlike you.

Most importantly, you might be the person who one day saves lives in a courtroom or on an operating table. Your preparation and success for that future start with day one at the university.
