When you apply to health professions schools, you will need to provide them with letters of evaluation or recommendation. You may request these from your professors or from the Pre-professional Health Studies Committee on Evaluations.
In general, health professions school admission committees prefer letters from the pre-health professions committee, and several schools require committee letters when such a committee exists at the applicant's undergraduate university.
The Pre-professional Health Studies Committee on Evaluations at Saint Louis University strives to present students in a positive, honest manner. The letter prepared by the committee is highly regarded by the health professions schools to which SLU students typically apply.
When do I get evaluated?
If you entered SLU as a freshman, and you intend to complete undergraduate studies in four years and enter a professional school the following year, you will be evaluated by the committee during your junior year of college.
Transfer students are evaluated during the year preceding application to health professions schools.
How to Request an Evaluation/Recommendation
You must request evaluation early in your junior year. The process begins in mid-September with a meeting for interested students.
For more information, contact Marita (Rita) Strube in the Office of Pre-professional Health Studies.
