Prehealth Advising Credential Service
We offer a credential service where you can store your letters of recommendation. If you use this service, we will send your letters to medical schools for you. You can also request a committee letter, written by MIT faculty on the Committee on Prehealth Advising (COPA), to be included in your packet of letters.
