The WVU Pre-Health Committee Letter Application for 2017 now open!

If you are applying to Dental, Medical, Optometry, Podiatry, or another health professional school that prefers or requires a committee letter, learn about the process here at WVU.

                                                 What is a Committee Letter?

The WVU Pre-Health Office and the WVU Pre-Health Committee prepares Committee Letters of Evaluation to assist students who are applying to health professional schools, including medical (allopathic or osteopathic), dental, optometry, and podiatry schools. Most health professional schools prefer to receive committee letters in addition to individual letters, because committee letters offer a substantive evaluation of students in a consistent format. Although most professional health schools do not require a Committee Letter, it is highly recommended. Therefore, obtaining a Committee Letter remains optional for the student. After you submit your application to the Pre-Health Office, the Pre-Health Committee will interview you, provide you with feedback on your interview, and submit the Committee Letter Packet on your behalf.

                                                        Application Submission

Applications will be accepted from February 6th, 2017 – May 1st, 2017
