Submission of Letters to Post-Baccalaureate Programs

The Preprofessional Advising Office does not submit letters of recommendation, previously written Letters of Evaluation, or previously written Dean’s Letters to post-baccalaureate programs, including master’s of medical sciences, special master’s programs, and other master’s programs.  This policy reflects the inability to meet the many different submission requirements and protocols introduced by individual schools. Students applying to such programs should ask individual recommenders to submit their letters directly to schools.

If a recommender no longer has a saved copy of a letter, you may request that we send a copy of the letter back to the recommender by emailing the Preprofessional Advising Office at preprof@bu.edu. You must include the recommender’s contact information in your email.

If you have any questions about submission of letters of recommendation to master’s programs, please make an appointment to meet with a prehealth advisor by calling the Preprofessional Advising Office at 617-353-4866.
