The Committee Letter Process
Each January, an email is sent to students who are officially part of the Program in Premedical Studies (PPS). The email requires that all those who will be applying to a professional school for the upcoming application season identify themselves to the PPS director by forwarding their full name, last four digits of the SSN, their email address and a contact number.
Only undergraduate and post-baccalaureate pre-med/pre-dental/pre-vet, etc., receive this email.
Those students are then sent an email notifying them of their mandatory attendance at the "Demystifying the Application" workshop, which is always held from 6-8 on Wednesday evening and Thursday afternoon from 12:30-2 in late February. Students are given the choice of which workshop to attend.
Committee Letter Interviews will be conducted by the CCNY Pre-Health Faculty Committee during the spring prior to the launch of the next application season.Undergraduate students must meet with the Pre-Health Faculty Committee for their committee letter; for post-baccalaureate students, you will be interviewed by the Premedical Studies Director and your letter will be written by the Premedical Studies Director.The goal is to have the all undergraduate and post-bac committee letters completed by the conclusion of the summer as students sumbit their applications to professional school.
If you are an alumni of the Program in Premedical Studies/CCNY and wish to apply to professional school, it is imperative that you contact the office by calling us at 212-650-6622 or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org during the early winter PRIOR to the launch of the professional school application season.
Committee Letters will NOT be written for any students if there is no evidence that they were part of the Program in Premedical Studies.
