How Do I Qualify for a Letter Packet

If for any reason a student wants to apply to a health professions medical school without the Hunter College endorsement via a Committee Letter, the student may choose to have their credentials 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, the student may still be able to receive a Letter Packet if they conform to all of the Letter Packet qualifications detailed below:

  • Apply to the Pre-Health Advising Office for a Letter Packet by January 1 of their application year;
  • 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 their Pre-Health online file by January 15. One from each of the following: an MD or DO; a biology, physics or chemistry professor; a research supervisor; a clinical experience supervisor; and a community service supervisor.
  • Have uploaded to their Pre-Health online file by January 15 a Letter of Good Standing from each academic institution attended since high school.

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.
