Each student must submit at least FOUR and no more than SEVEN letters of reference from individuals. These letters should be mostly from academic sources.
In order to accept your application the Prehealth Office must have received at least four letters by the deadline.
Letters should be requested from faculty or supervisors whenever you believe the reference writer has enough information about you to write effectively. Avoid waiting a year or two later as memories can fade. Blank letter of recommendation request forms are available on our Forms page.
Recommenders can then send the reference directly to the Exploratory and Pre-Professional Advising Center, 112 Capen Hall where the references will be retained for 5 years or until an application is filed for the Prehealth Committee Letter. They can drop off letters in person, mail them or scan and attach them as a PDF or Word doc to firstname.lastname@example.org. Consult the form referenced above for all pertinent details.
