How Do I Qualify for a Letter Packet

If for any reason a Pre-Health student wants to apply to health professions graduate schools without the Hunter College endorsement via a Committee Letter, the student may choose to have their recommendation letters uploaded to a dossier service or a common application via a Letter Packet if they conform to Letter Packet qualifications.

If a student does NOT have an open Pre-Health File and is NOT eligible to receive a Committee Letter because they do not meet the requirements set forth in this website or because the Pre-Health Office does not provide Committee Letters for their intended profession, the student may still be able to receive a Letter Packet if they conform to all of the Letter Packet qualifications detailed below:

  • Attend a Letter Packet Workshop and timely submit the Letter Packet Application to the Pre-Health Advising Office;
  • Have a science and overall GPA of 3.0;
  • Have an MCAT score of 500 or above or a DAT score of 19 or above;
  • Have five (5) letters of recommendation uploaded to the Pre-Health database via the link on the Welcome Page of this website by the Letter Packet Application deadline in the year in which you are applying. Please submit one letter from each of the following: a practicing clinician in the area of healthcare to which you are applying; a biology, physics or chemistry professor; a research supervisor if applicable; a clinical volunteering supervisor; and a community service supervisor. All letters of recommendation must be on letterhead and contain the signature of the letter writer.
  • Provide a Letter of Good Standing from each academic institution attended since high school by the deadline for the Letter Packet Application.

A student seeking a Letter Packet can access the Pre-Health Advising Office website Welcome Page and use the Request a Letter of Recommendation link to assemble references under their name. 

Please Note:  You are responsible for making certain that all letters of recommendation have been received by the Pre-Health Office. Please check with our office to ensure that the letters have been received, are on letterhead, and are signed.
