The Office of Prehealth Studies offers a service in which we submit letters of evaluation for current or graduated Baylor University prehealth students who are in the process of applying to medical, dental, or podiatry school. There is a non-refundable $10.00 processing fee for processing through the Virtual Evals service. Forms will be processed in the date order in which they are received along with receipt of all anticipated evaluations or recommendation letters. As always, the student is ultimately responsible for ensuring the arrival of their letter(s) to the institutions to which they are applying. Our office began uploading letters and packets on June 2, 2014. Please keep in mind that a student's ability to be a competitive applicant drastically decreases if their science GPA is below a 3.0 regardless of MCAT or DAT score. Students must meet the following criteria in order to use this service.
- Student must have a Baylor ID#
- Student must be a current or graduated Baylor University prehealth student
- Student must have completed either our committee or non-committee process
- Committee Students must have a BCPM GPA of 3.3 or higher for this service
- Non-Committee Student must have a BCPM GPA between 3.0 and 3.29 for this service
NOTE: If you did not complete either of these process or if your BCPM GPA is below a 3.0, you are not eligible for this service. You can calculate your BCPM GPA by clicking HERE.
You may need some of the following information to fill out the form completely.
- Contact Information
- Application ID#s (i.e. for TMDSAS, AMCAS, etc.) *IMPORTANT* - if you are applying through AMCAS, you must have both your AAMC ID# and the AAMC letter ID#. We will not be able to submit to them without both numbers. Failing to put these numbers on your form will cause a delay in your packet's submission.
- MCAT or DAT Information
- Recommender Information, not online evaluators (if applicable)
- Program Name for non-participants of TMDSAS or AMCAS (if applicable)
- Credit Card to pay the $10.00 Virtual Evals processing fee*
