Letter Packet

The deadline to apply for a Letter Packet for the 2023 Entering Class is July 31, 2022.

To assist you with your health professions applications, the MedOpp Advising Office transmits letters of recommendation for all current and former MU students who are not eligible for a Committee Letter or who are applying for a pre-admission program or other medically-related program.

Letters will be transmitted electronically to medical schools via AMCAS, AACOMAS, TDMSAS or sent via AADSAS to dental schools. Letters for other programs such as international schools, post-bac programs, or special master’s programs will be sent via regular mail or email.

For students requesting a Letter Packet to be sent by the MedOpp Advising Office, they must submit their Letter Packet Application with supporting materials and payment no later than July 31, 2022.

Letters will not be sent unless your file is complete and your AMCAS/AACOMAS/TMDSAS/AADSAS* application has been submitted.
