Committee Letters

The University of St. Thomas provides committee evaluations for students applying to osteopathic and/or allopathic medical schools.  Letters are available to currently enrolled degree-seeking students, as well as alumni who have completed their undergraduate degree within one year of the committee letter application deadline.  Please note:  Students enrolled in St. Thomas courses through the Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities (ACTC) program are not eligible for a committee letter.

The committee letter is based on the student’s academic and disciplinary record, extracurricular activities, recommendations by three St. Thomas faculty members and a 45 minute panel interview.  Students typically interview during spring semester just prior to the summer they plan to submit their medical school application. To help prepare, students are encouraged to contact Career Development and schedule a mock interview.

Students planning to apply to medical school should email Ms. Darcel Brommer, to express their interest in participating in the committee letter process. Please include your UST ID number and the year in which you hope to enter medical school in your message.  Upon verification of eligibility to receive a committee letter, students will be enrolled to a special Blackboard site.  Students are responsible for uploading their Committee Letter Request Form and all required supplemental documents to the aforementioned Blackboard site.

The 2017 Committee Letter Application and Faculty Recommendation Request forms are available below.

The deadline for the 2017 Committee Letter Application is 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, March 29, 2017. Students who miss stated deadlines are ineligible for a committee letter.  Note, the Faculty Recommendations are not due until Wednesday, June 7, 2017. 

PLEASE NOTE:  These forms need to be completed in Adobe Reader only.  All UST library computers are equipped with Adobe Reader.
