How It Works

Georgia Tech Letters of Evaluation Service

The Georgia Tech Letters of Evaluation (LOE) service is a letter packet compilation service for pre-health students and alumni. Pre-health advisors do not write letters of evaluation or committee letters. Instead, evaluators send their letters to Pre-Health Advising, and we disseminate the letters as a packet to health professional schools or application services (i.e. AMCAS, AACOMAS, AADSAS, TMDSAS, and/or AACPMAS) once an applicant makes a formal upload request. Please make note that:

  • A maximum of 6 letters are allowed in your Letter Packet
  • All school will accept your Letter Packet as it is an official GT Pre-Health service
  • All letters submitted to the LOE packet service will be included in your packet of letters

If you are applying this summer (2024 cycle) and have not started the letter collection process with us, please connect with a pre-health advisor and Ms. Morris during the virtual drop-in sessions in order to best evaluate how our office can best support you in this process.

LOE Virtual Drop-in Hours: 

Hosted by Monique Morris (LINK)

  • Tuesdays: 11:00-12:00 PM ET
  • Fridays: 1:00-2:00 PM ET

Student and alumni can review resources and information on the Pre-Health Canvas site. Don’t have access to the Pre-Health Canvas site? Request to be added here.

All LOE inquiries can be directed to the pre-health@provost.gatech.edu email.

NOTE: Please be aware that the Virtual Drop-In Hours via Zoom will be an open space to conduct group advising sessions online.  Anyone with the link below can enter the Zoom space at any time, so it’s not the space for personal conversations. If you have general questions, the “Zoom Group Online Advising Hour” is the place to be.  (Schedule an appointment on Advisor Link for more personal conversations.) You can use Zoom through your web browser or download the app. 

Note Regarding FERPA, student privacy, and virtual advising:

We are offering students the opportunity to conduct advising via videoconferencing, but must convey that this method does make ensuring FERPA privacy difficult.  Advisors will conduct video advising in a private location, and recommend that students do the same to limit the amount of information which could be overheard by others in the vicinity.  By agreeing to video conference-advising, students are confirming they understand this situation.
