Committee Letter Process

Premedical/Predental Committee Letter Process

The Baylor Premedical/Predental Committee Letter process is designed to prepare students for the medical/dental school application process. Eligible students should begin the committee process during the fall semester of the year prior to applying to professional schools. Committee process participants/students are expected to attend professional workshops (personal statements, interview skills, etc.) and are required to turn in assignments before they are interviewed by a Prehealth Advisory Committee member in the spring semester. The result of the committee process is a committee letter sent to medical/dental schools. The committee letter will fulfill the letters of evaluation requirement of most medical/dental school applications.

**TMDSAS considers either the Baylor Committee Letter or the Baylor Letter Packet as a Health Professions Committee Packet.

The Baylor Committee Letter is composed of the committee evaluation and letters from various Baylor faculty evaluators.

The Baylor Letter Packet is a collection of individual evaluation letters plus a cover letter from the Baylor Prehealth office that serves as a central collection service for the student, but does NOT make additional assessments of the candidate.

Please email prehealth_committee@baylor.edu if you have any questions concerning the Baylor Premedical/Predental Committee Letter process.
