What is a Re-Applicant?

"Re-applicant" refers to an individual who is participating in the re-applicant process after having fully completed the committee process in a prior year, including meeting with their committee advisor and requesting a committee letter to support an application to medical or dental schools. Rather, an individual Pre-Health Professions advisor writes an addendum to the applicant’s previous Committee letter detailing how the applicant has improved his or her candidacy. The applicant is responsible for providing supporting information to the Pre-Health office via the Pre-Health Applications Database. Pre-Health advisors are randomly assigned to write the addendum. Re-applicants are held to the same policies and procedures for releasing their re-applicant letters as the first time Pre-Health Professions Advisory Committee applicants.
