This Analysis in Brief presents descriptive results of a survey administered to collect information on current medical school admissions practices regarding the use of letters. Results show that all medical schools included in the survey used letters of evaluation in their screening processes to learn about applicants’ personal competencies, that more than half of admissions officers indicated being less than satisfied with the quality of information provided by letters, and three out of four schools indicated that a centralized set of guidelines could improve the usefulness of letters.
