Note: Forms for the 2016 application cycle will be released on our website and Blackboard site by mid-January.  We also will have hard copies available in the Pre-Health Office.

A cover letter packet consists of a one page summary sheet about the applicant (e.g. name, major, minor, GPA) and a maximum of six letters of evaluation.  Students do not interview for the cover letter packet.

Complete and print the cover letter request form and return it to the Office of Pre-Health Advising and Mentoring.

We recommend you have three letters from science faculty, one letter from a non-science faculty member, a letter from a physician you shadowed, and the sixth letter is your choice.

Important: All of the items below must be in your pre-health file before we can submit your cover letter packet:

  • Copy of completed AMCAS/TMDSAS/AACOMAS*/other application with submission date
  • AACOMAS* applications do not show date of submission
  • AMCAS letter request form, if applicable
  • Blue form plus $10 processing fee, if applicable (for osteopathic and/or off-shore schools)
  • All six letters of evaluation
  • Letter of evaluation selection form if you decide, after the committee letter interview, to change which letters you want included in your packet
