UGA Pre-Professional Planner


The Pre-Professional Advising Office (PPAO) is excited to introduce the UGA Pre-Professional Planner to enable pre-health and pre-law students the ability to keep track of their co-curricular experiences for their application cycle.
This App allows the user to digitally log their experiences from freshman year on. The App will prompt the user with all of the experience categories that are relevant for their pre-professional area and help them identify the skills that each activity builds upon. The user will also be able to keep a journal of their experiences to utilize for personal statements and mock interviews. Additionally, the user can download this information to an Excel document that will allow for easy transfer to their professional school application.

Learn more about the App here. 

We will have a Android version coming soon!
