(this does not include 2007) and are unable to obtain Letters of Evaluation
from your school, we will accept other academically oriented
letters. However, keep in mind that providing us with the requested letters
will strengthen your application.
Undergraduate School Letters
If your college has a
Premedical Advisory Committee, a Letter of Evaluation from the Committee is
preferred and will fulfill all undergraduate requirements. A committee letter
does not require the names of individual letter writers.
If your college does not
have a Premedical Advisory Committee, Letters of Evaluation from three undergraduate
professors including at least two from science courses (biology, chemistry, physics, biomedical engineering
or bioengineering) are required. Math is not considered a science for purposes of Letters of Evaluation. Letters of Evaluation must come from faculty who have taught you in
class or have supervised independent research for which you have received
credit toward your science GPA.
One Letter of Evaluation
must be from the department in which you majored, whether science or
non-science, as identified in your AMCAS application.
