The Center for Pre-Professional Advising office offers students the opportunity to open a professional file containing their letters of evaluation/recommendation. The Center for Pre-Professional Advising office then distributes their letters to their chosen professional programs. The process is simple and ensures that the letters are available to medical, optometry, dental schools, etc. quickly after their letters are received. The letters are housed for five years so they are immediately available if the student needs to apply again.
One note about professional files: letters can be used only for the purpose for which they were collected. If a student placed letters in a file to be sent to medical schools but then decides to apply to public health programs, he or she must obtain new letters written for the new purpose.
The only exceptions to this rule: we will send letters to postbaccalaureate programs, to the U.S. military for scholarships supporting medical/dental training, and to other scholarship programs that will support the student's medical/dental training.
