Timetable for What Premed/Predent Students Should Do and When It Should Be Done

Xavier is successful at placing students into medical, dental, and similar schools because we start preparing students the first week they arrive at the University and continue for three or more years when the students graduate.

The good thing about this approach is that it works!! (Xavier has been #1 nationally in placing African-Americans into medical school since the early 1990's.)

The bad thing is that is ALWAYS something which students who want to go to medical, dental, etc. school should be doing.

The following are links to detailed lists of what students at Xavier who wish to enter medical, dental, etc. school should do each year while at the University. These lists are organized for students who enter as freshmen and graduate from the University in four years. The comments following "Junior Year" and "Senior Year" are intended to help other students adjust the schedule to fit their particular situation.

  • Freshman Year
  • Sophomore Year
  • Junior Year (Starting 24 months BEFORE you wish to enter medical, dental, etc. school)
  • Senior year (Starting 12 months BEFORE you wish to enter medical, dental, etc. school)
    • Fall Term = Send in Secondary Applications as soon as they arrive, take interviews as soon as they are offered, and keep your grades up.
    • Spring Term = If you have been accepted, RELAX but don't forget that your acceptance letter was based on your finishing the courses in which you are enrolled this year. If you haven't been accepted, keep on checking with the schools to see what you status is.
    • Summer = If you have been accepted, relax while getting ready for the fall because this is the last break you will have for a while. If you haven't been accepted, keep on checking with the schools and decide whether or not you will reapply. If so, assess your situation to see why you didn't get accepted and make corrections before reapplying.
