Identify people who know you well and can firmly comment on your ability as a medical student and future physician. Ask in advance and give your letter writers sufficient time to complete and submit. Also, remember to stay in touch with letter writers who you may also ask in the future!
The Pre-Professional Advising Office offers a Letter of Recommendation Service for students applying to AMCAS, AACOMAS, or AADSAS (all other application services use their own portal for LOR’s). In most cases, letters are not required to be submitted prior to you submitting your application but can be sent at a later date. For steps and information regarding the LOR Service, visit https://students.asu.edu/prehealth/letters-recommendation.
Some schools have specific requirements so consult the MSAR
After medical schools have received your primary AMCAS application, they may invite you to complete a secondary or supplemental application. Supplemental applications are sent between July and October and usually have fees associated with them. It is important that you complete and submit supplemental applications as soon as possible.
