Letter Packet Requirements

The Letter Packet Includes the full content of all required evaluator letters and a cover sheet from the PreMed and PreHealth Advising Program. It does not include an evaluation from the PreMed and PreHealth Advising Program. Students who do not meet all the requirements and deadlines for a Committee Letter may still qualify for a Letter Packet.

A Letter Packet requires that applicants obtain required Letters of Evaluation, release their entrance exam scores to NU, and submit a primary application (and upload a PDF copy to MAP). Once these conditions are met, applicants should email their PreMed/PreHealth Advisor to request their Letter Packet. If you do not meet all requirements you will not be eligible to receive a Letter Packet but may still apply with individual letters. If you choose to send individual letters of evaluation, please do not request them through MAP. Instead, follow the instructions in the common application for your profession.

Applicants who are accepted to a medical school and decline matriculation are not eligible for future Letter Packets. The PreMed and PreHealth Advising Program has a three time limit for Letter Packets. The PreMed and PreHealth Advising Program cannot forward letters to any program other than what was designated on the original request. Thus, we are unable to send letters to medical masters or Post-Baccalaureate programs. Please contact your evaluators directly to request that letters be tailored to the program to which you are applying.
