Committee letters are written by the Director of Pre-Health Advising and Mentoring, Prof. Michael Gaines, after interviewing qualified applicants. The committee letter packet consists of a qualitative ranking, a two-page letter discussing the applicant’s academic performance, research, shadowing, leadership, and community service experience, and six additional letters of evaluation.
Please review the committee letter procedures.
Also review the procedures for committee and cover letter packet submission to medical schools that must be followed in order for the Pre-Health Office to submit your committee letter packet.
