A Premedical Advisory Committee Report is required. If your school does not have a Premedical Advisory Committee, please request individual letters of evaluation from 3 people: 2 academic and 1 of your choice. A fourth letter may be sent from a person associated with a particularly significant extracurricular experience. These letters should come from individuals who can assess your personal (as well as academic) qualities, such as work ethic, reliability, communication skills, leadership, altruism, compassion, and motivation for medicine.
As the Carver College of Medicine is participating in the AMCAS Letter Service, you will be asked to choose your letter types on your AMCAS application. All letters of recommendation must be submitted through AMCAS.
In summary, these are your choices:
Once letters have been accepted by the Carver College of Medicine, no substitutions or additions may be made. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
