What is a composite letter?
Admission committees to the professional schools usually prefer to receive a committee letter of evaluation from a pre-medical committee at the institution the applicant attends. The committee writes on behalf of the applicant, recommending them based on the ranking system of the applicant’s institution.
Adelphi’s Pre-medical Council will write a composite letter for your application to professional school and issue you a ranking based on various criteria that are discussed among Council members. These decisive factors include your GPA, ethical conduct, academic honesty, and personal characteristics. The ranking system that the Pre-medical Council of Adelphi uses is the following:
|Very Highly recommended||(90-100 Percentile)|
|Highly recommended||(75-90 Percentile)|
|Recommended without reservation||(50-75 Percentile)|
|Recommended with reservation||(25-50 Percentile)|
This composite letter consists mainly of six parts:

Most professional schools admit students on a continuing basis beginning in the fall (rolling admissions). It is in your best interest to have your application completed by early fall.
DEADLINE DATE: All material for your Pre-Medical Council composite letter MUST be submitted no later than May 15 at the end of your junior year!
