Letters of Recommendation

Letters of Recommendation

We require either one composite recommendation from your undergraduate school’s premedical committee or three individual letters of recommendation from your premedical or research advisor, professors at the institution where you last studied, or other individuals of your choice.  If your school prepares a letter packet, we will accept the letter packet in lieu of a premedical committee letter for your application. You may submit more than three letters during the course of the application cycle.

Transmission of Letters

Alpert Medical School participates in the AMCAS Letter Service for submission of letters of recommendation. We are listed as Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University on the AMCAS list of participating schools.  

Paper letters are accepted if they are original documents printed on letterhead, signed by the writer, and mailed directly from the author (or premedical committee) to the Office of Admissions, Alpert Medical School, Box G-M, Providence RI 02912.

Letters of recommendation must be received by the secondary application deadline of December 31, 2014.
