What does pre-professional mean?
Pre-professional means that you would like to prepare for a specific career. It's a set of courses that you should take if you plan on taking the exam and entering Law school, or medical school, after you graduate.
It is important to note that a pre-professional plan (e.g. - Pre-law) is not a major. You could major in Instrumental Performance and be Pre-law at the same time if you wanted. However, most students attempt to major in an area that will complement their career choice.
Here are some examples:
- A Pre-law student might major in Government or Economics.
- A Pre-veterinary student might major in Biology or Biochemistry.
- A Pre-seminary student might major in Literature or History.
