AMCAS Letters of Evaluation
AMCAS accepts applicants' letters of evaluation via the AMCAS Letter Service and distributes them to participating medical schools electronically. This service enables letter authors to send their letters to AMCAS rather than to each individual school. Letter writers may submit letters through the AMCAS Letter Writer Application, Interfolio , VirtualEvals , or by mail.
If a medical school participates in the AMCAS Letter Service, all letters must be sent through AMCAS. Medical schools that participate in AMCAS for admission to their M.D. program also participate in the AMCAS Letter Service unless noted on this page. Please note, participation is subject to change. Schools that do not participate in the AMCAS Letter Service may still require letters of evaluation from you. To review a medical school's requirements for letters of evaluation, visit their admissions website.
