The counselors in the College of Science are the primary premedical/predental advisors at LSU. They are members of the National Association of Advisors for the Health Professions (NAAHP) and attend national and regional conferences on issues relating to advising of undergraduate students interested in a career in the health professions. The counselors in the College of Science present informational meetings each semester for freshmen and sophomores who are interested in preparing themselves to be competitive candidates for medical and dental school. College of Science counselors also serve on the LSU Premedical/Predental Review Committee and provide workshops on the application process ranging from meeting prerequisites to preparing for interviews. Check the website frequently for calendars of meetings and information sessions.
While the counselors in the College of Science can assist you with the medical/dental school requirements and application process, students should see the counselors in their home college regarding academic requirements for their individual degrees.
The College of Science counselors are located in 336 Hatcher Hall. Weekly advising schedules are posted here. You can call (225) 578-4200 to schedule an appointment during the posted hours or to obtain further information regarding advising.
