Professional schools are interested in well-rounded applicants who demonstrate a realistic understanding of the field they wish to enter, excellent communication skills, emotional maturity, compassion and empathy, and breadth and depth of direct, hands-on experience.
Knowing why you want to enter the profession is key.
