Being a Pre-Health Mid-Year Student
First of all, congratulations on your offer of admission to Brandeis University’s Midyear class! While you may not have initially considered starting your college career in a Spring semester rather than the fall, there are a number of benefits:
- Senior year of high school is usually filled with tough AP classes, the stress of college admissions, and other high-pressure situations. A semester off gives you time to mentally refresh and be ready for classes.
- Instead of taking courses in the Fall, you can focus on other pre-health activities, such as gaining EMT certification, working in a hospital setting, or doing research full-time.
- You will matriculate with a smaller group of students, which may help you better find others to bond with and get to know.
- You will start with Spring semester courses including your UWS, without the stress of premed pre-requisite courses, since the pre-requisites all begin in the Fall semester.
Feel free to contact us with any questions - we are delighted to help you plan out your pre-med experience here at Brandeis!
