    LORs

    Advertisements



    I sent my LORs with my application form. I asked each of my professors to seal the envelop and sign across. Each envelop had recipient's address as well as the sender's. It just didn't have a stamp on it b/c I sent all LORs with my application form! I never knew that the profs have to send the letters directly to AUC. It was never mentioned in the application package!! Were you guys aware of this?! Now the office asked me to sent the letters again!!

    I think most schools require LORs be sent from the person who wrote it or through some other official capacity. My university had a system where you had your professor or whoever mail it to them, they filed it, and reproduced it on school stationary and sent it out through their offices.

    I know it is irritating, but it does say it somewhere because I recently sent in my application (like in the past two months or so), and I read that they need to be sent directly by the professors and that is why I did it that way. It may be on their website, but I just wanted you to know it does say it somewhere (I thought it was on the application itself when I did it, but maybe I saw it at the website instead). There is also a area where it talks about how to send you application and stuff. I know it says it on there.

    It is written in the application procedure.

    http://aucmed.com/admissions/app_procedure.htm

    For freshman applicants, an official letter of evaluation from your Pre-Medical Advisory Committee, addressed to the attention of the "Admissions Committee, American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine" and sent directly to MEAS (not to the campus). Additional letters of recommendation from individual pre-medical course professors who have taught the applicant are strongly encouraged and will be accepted as further support of the applicant's candidacy to medical school. These letters must appear on original letterhead stationery and be directly sent from the individual offering the recommendation

    I assume it is ok to have your letters sent from a letter service such as interfolio.com?

    People have done it in the past without problems.

    Also you must make sure to check the box that makes the letters anon.
