Those that meet minimum eligibility requirements will be reviewed by health program department heads and scored based on discipline specific criteria. Applicants will receive a letter of admission status. Admissions status can be either selected, alternate, or not selected. Those that are not selected for admission, who do not receive a slot, or who decline a slot are welcome to reapply for the following academic year.
