Independent Minds, Working Together

Alumni

If you graduated in the previous two years and are applying to medical or dental school (or any other health care program that requires a committee letter), the Pre-Health Advising Committee can write a composite committee letter on your behalf. If you are going to be requesting a committee letter, you are encouraged to contact the Chair of the Pre-Health Advising Committee as soon as possible to discuss your application and to review information about the Application Process.  

The type of committee letter Wooster’s Pre-Health Advising Committee prepares is a composite committee letter that summarizes and quotes information obtained from individual letters of recommendation you solicit and includes information the committee members learned from interviewing and working directly with you.  

To obtain a committee letter, you must follow the Committee Letter Process.  For alumni, the specific dates/deadlines identified for this process can be flexible, although it is to your advantage to adhere to the recommended timeline (.pdf).
