Pre-Med Letters of Recommendation

Pre-Med letters of Recommendation

You will need 3-4 Letters of Recommendation for your application (though you may send up to 6).  Please begin the process of requesting these letters early.  Before you request a letter be sure that your resume is ready and updated.  Some recommenders may request a personal statement as well.

When selecting recomenders think of those people who know you best.  Below is a list of letters commonly included in the application:

  • Professor (or TF, usually co-signed by the professor) from a science class
  • Professor (or TF, usually co-signed by the professor) from a non-science class
  • Research mentor
  • Someone who has supervised you at work or in a volunteer activity
