Advisor Letter Services

CWRU undergraduate students and recent alumni applying to a professional health science schools may request a Composite Letter Packet to be submitted by the pre-medical or pre-health advisor. The packet consists of individual letters of recommendation submitted to Post-Graduate Planning and Experiential Education from faculty, professional mentors and supervisors, and a letter of evaluation from the pre-medical or pre-health advisor.


The Composite Letter Packet requires three letters of recommendation from CWRU faculty. Two faculty letters must come from STEM areas (e.g., biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics). At least one of these two letters must come from a STEM faculty member who has taught a course in which you were enrolled. The third faculty letter must come from a non-STEM area, such as the arts, humanities, social sciences or business.

Up to two additional letters may be submitted for inclusion in the letter packet. These optional letters may come from additional faculty members (CWRU or non-CWRU), primary investigators and research mentors, health professionals you have shadowed, advisors or supervisors.
