If you open a professional file in the Center for Pre-Professional Advising office (Young 828), we will handle all of your evaluation/recommendation letters for you. Your letters should be sent directly to our office--you should never handle your letters! It is easy to open a file. There are a few short forms that you need to fill out, but the process is simple and ensures that your letters are available to medical, optometry, and dental schools, as well as other programs very quickly once your file is complete. Your letters are housed for five years and are immediately available should you need to apply to the same kind of program again. Packets to start your file are available in 828 Young Halll.
