This page is designed to address questions you may have with our brand new online request form. We will add to this page as questions arise.



The form asks me for DAT information but I am applying to medical school and only took/will be taking the MCAT.

If you encounter this issue, please put N/A in the box that asks for the date you sat for the DAT or when you will take the DAT.

The form asks me for MCAT information but I am applying to dental school and only took/will be taking the DAT.

This answer is similar to the one above. If you encounter this issue, please put N/A in the box that asks for the date you sat for the MCAT or when you will take the MCAT.

I already submitted my form and payment but now I have decided to apply to additional programs that were not listed on my original request form. How can I still add them?

If you would like to add additional schools to your file, please email the names and addresses of your additional institutions to prehealth_committee@baylor.edu.

When filling out the online form, I did not see one of the programs I am applying to on the drop down list. How can I still have my letter(s) sent?

If you would like to have your letter(s) sent to a program not on our list, please email the names and addresses of these institutions to prehealth_committee@baylor.edu.

The form only allows up to 12 additional programs not on the TMDSAS or AMCAS list but I want to apply to more. How can I still do this?

The form is new and we are working on a way to add more than 12 additional programs. However, until then please email the additional program names and address to prehealth_committee@baylor.edu.

How many full letters of recommendation can I have in my packet?

The application service we use has a file limit for submissions. This normally allows for 2 LOR for committee students and 4 LOR for non-committee students. If your packet reaches the upload limit, we will contact you about your options.

I have a committee letter from a previous year and I want to replace evaluations. How can I do this?

Unfortunately, we cannot make changes to your original committee letter. A committee letter is based on the information and your performance during the year you participated in the committtee process. We can however updated any full letters of recommendation by adding new ones.

Will you still accept the old paper version of the request form?

No. We will no longer accept paper request forms for this process. Any old paper forms submitted to our office will be shredded as they are out of date. There are many places such as the public library that offer free internet access which will allow you to fill out the online form.

I graduated over 3 years ago. Am I still eligible to use this service?

Unfortunately, no. Our office is not able to store files/documents infinitely. After three years, files in our office for graduates are destroyed because they are out-dated for the purpose of applying for admissions into educational programs.

When will my letter(s)/packet be submitted?

Our office began uploading letters and packets to the application services on June 2, 2014. We will submit information based on the receipt order of the request form, payment, and any additional documents needed. Currently it is taking our office about 4 weeks to submit a packet after the initial request and payment have been received.
