Preprofessional Advising strives to:

  • Help Columbia College and Columbia Engineering students and alumni identify and refine their interests in professional school (law, medicine and health professions such as dentistry, veterinary medicine, and public health); and

Preprofessional Advising also oversees the Premedical Committee Evaluation and the Law School Dean’s Certification process.
