Had I not attended TCU, I am not sure that I ever would have been accepted in to dental school.  My personal relationship with the professors helped so greatly with my letter of recommendation and I was told that it was one of the best, letters they had ever reviewed.

TCU doesn't just give you the degree you need to move on, TCU gives its students an education and the promise that they will succeed.

- Hayden Fuller - TCU Class of 2012, Student at University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry

The Pre-Health Professions Team was so supportive and helpful when I was applying to medical school.  That support meant so much and helped me get accepted.

The program has done so much to help young people achieve their goals.

- Dan Doss, D.D.S. - TCU Class of 1974, Pediatric Dentist in Fort Worth

Few Pre-Health programs can boast medical school acceptance rates in the range of 80 to 95% that have remained steady for the past ten years.

- Jim Wagner, M.D. -Associate Dean for Student Affairs, University of Texas Southwestern Medical School

The leadership, mentorship, and extracurricular experience that I gained through the Pre-Health Professions Program was a distinct advantage in helping me gain admission into my first choice medical school.
