UCF Letters Packet Service Update – Summer 2023
UCF Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental Students:
Letters of recommendation are a critical part of the medical and dental school application and admission selection. The Pre-Health and Pre-Law Advising office has offered the Letters Packet service for UCF applicants to medical and dental school as means to help our applicants collect and send their letters of recommendation as a part of their application. This service has been a valuable resource to our UCF pre-medical and pre-dental students, faculty, and partners for decades.
We regret to inform you that the 2023-2024 Letters Packet service will no longer be available to NEW medical and dental school applicants beginning this Summer 2023. We know how much our students, faculty, and partners value this service and we also know that this may be a shocking and difficult change to process. This has been a hard decision to make and our administration has been closely consulted.
We want to assure you that you are still able to apply to medical and dental schools without using our letters packet service. Many large institutions similar to UCF (for example, UF, USF, etc.) have never had a letters packet or similar service at their school, and their applicants still regularly gain acceptances, just as our UCF applicants will continue to gain acceptances too.
We thank you for your understanding of this change to our office’s services, and you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Reapplicants/How to Re-Use Letters on File?
If you have submitted a Letters Packet Request to PHPL Advising during a previous application cycle, and therefore have existing letters of evaluation on file that you may wish to re-use, you must follow the steps below to access your letters for the current application cycle.
If you are a REAPPLICANT and planning to apply in Summer 2023 for the 2023-2024 application cycle and you currently have your letters of recommendation on file with our office, we WILL still be able to upload your letters “AS IS” to your AMCAS, AACOMAS, TMDSAS, or AADSAS application(s). At this time, we cannot accommodate for any changes to the letters we currently have on file for you though such as changes to dates, signatures, additional letters, etc. Please email us at email@example.com if you:
1) will be a REAPPLICANT in Summer 2023,
2) already have your letters of recommendation on file in our office from a previous application cycle, and
3) you want to RE-USE your letters of recommendation we have on file for your Summer 2023 application.
