Letter of Recommendation Application

A letter or recommendation from your school's Pre-Health Professions Committee is a very important part of your medical school application. All schools will want to receive one one have an explanation why one is not included.

In order to have the PHPAC write a letter of recommendation for you, you will need to fill out the following forms and submit them to the committee along with this information:

  1. Official college transcripts.
  2. MCAT or other test scores.
  3. At least 3 letters of recommendation (the more good letters the better).
  4. Forms: (Note: these forms require the latest version of Acrobat Reader, which is available as a free download.)

Once your file is complete, let the committee know that you would like a letter of recommendation, when it is due, and the addresses of the schools that it should be sent to. Be sure to give the committee at least 3 weeks before any deadlines to complete this letter.
