Reapplicants

Reapplicants DO NOT come through the full Committee process a second time UNLESS they first came through the Committee as an Early Assurance applicant or EOPIM candidate.

The application to request an addendum is available beginning mid-May. Reapplicants are highly encouraged to complete this application and submit it in late May or June. Please remember that the timing of an application and all its components (e.g., transcripts, letters of rec) within an admission cycle is critical. Therefore, we highly recommend that you *not* ask for an addendum after August 15 of the application year for the MD and DDS programs or beyond October 31 for the DO schools.

Reapplicants are advised to:

  • Professional schools expect at least some updated or new letters as part of a re-applicant letter packet. At least ONE letter, if not more, should be new or refreshed/updated from a previous year(s). Secure updated letters that reflect any relevant activities since the last application and arrange to have them sent to our office using the waiver form found on our Forms page. This way, your packet remains timely to reflect all you have done to continue to make yourself a more competitive applicant.
  • Complete the Addendum Application, which provides our office with a summary of any recent academic work, clinical work, research, etc. This application is currently closed and will reopen mid-May.
  • Complete a new release form found on our Forms page. Please turn in your release form when you are ready to submit your actual professional health school application (e.g., AMCAS, AADSAS, AACOMAS).
  • Pay a $10 re-applicant fee to cover the costs of letter transmission. Within 7-10 days after submission of your addendum application, you will be sent an email with further instructions regarding payment and access to the UB Epay system.

Finally, please note that as with your original request to secure a Committee letter, the Office of Prehealth Advising and the Prehealth Committee retains the right to contact the Office of Student Conduct and Advocacy to run a disciplinary review on you, as well as to contact the Division of Academic Affairs for any issues such as plagiarism or cheating, if you request an addendum or update to your original Committee letter.
