Preparation for Medical, Dental & Veterinary School
If you are eyeing medical schools, dental schools, or veterinary schools, McDaniel offers the ideal environment to prepare you for success. You will be learning about a genetic disease in a classroom of 18 students, not a lecture hall of 200 students. When you raise your hand, your professor can actually see you. When you hand in a piece of work, your professor (not a graduate student) will provide 100% of the critique. When you need advice about what class to take next, your professor will know you well enough to construct a plan specific to you. And importantly, your recommendation letter for graduate school will be written by a professor who has become your personal mentor, creating a strong impression on postgraduate admissions committees.
