The Parts of Your Medical School Application

New section

There are many different components that go into a complete medical school application. Learn what these pieces are, why medical schools ask for them, and what each part says about your qualifications as an applicant.

New section

Letters of Evaluation

A confidential letter sent directly to the application service by a person (or your undergraduate institution’s committee) on your behalf. You will indicate who your letter writers are, what types of letters will be sent to AMCAS, and which schools should receive each letter in section six of your AMCAS application.

Please feel free to direct letter writers to the "Guidelines for Writing a Letter of Evaluation for a Medical School Applicant" webpage.

If you would like to provide your letter writers with a printed resource, then access the "Guidelines for Writing a Letter of Evaluation for a Medical School Applicant" PDF.

Letters of evaluation should highlight your personal qualities, characteristics, competencies, and capabilities as a future physician, from the perspective of someone who knows you.
