Pre-Health Advising

Faculty Information

UF faculty members occasionally will be asked by students applying to professional schools to write letters of recommendation. We have compiled information that should prove helpful.

Mock Interviews

If you have been invited to an interview at a professional school you can make an appointment for a mock interview with a pre-health advisor. Appointments are 30 minutes in length and will include a simulation of a real interview along with feedback for improving your interviewing skills. Students should come professionally dressed. Please call 352-273-4083 to schedule an appointment. Before your appointment you will need to provide a copy of your interview invitation, personal statement, and resume at least 2 days in advance. If this information is not provided your appointment will be canceled. In the event of an emergency or if you need to reschedule your appointment for any reason, you must call 352-273-4083 at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled time. If you fail to cancel your appointment at least 24 hours in advance, you may no longer be able to schedule future mock interview appointments. Appointment times are limited during peak periods. The Career Connection Center is also available for mock interviews.

Personal Statement Review

We recommend that you have your personal statement reviewed by multiple people as you prepare your final draft. Feel free to utilize the Writing Studio and Career Connections Center at UF. The Pre-Health team is available to review ONE final draft of your personal statement. Due to the high volume of statements received we are unable to offer subsequent reviews of your statement. We do not review personal statements via walk-in advising or by appointment. Please allow up to 2 weeks (10 business days) for your personal statement to be reviewed.

To request a review, please submit your Personal Statement Cover Page and the final draft of your personal statement to prehealth@advising.ufl.edu. Once your statement has been reviewed, you will be notified via email.
