Pre-Medicine Advisory Committee

After you submit your primary application to the Association of American Medical Colleges, medical schools may request letters of recommendation, typically as part of your secondary application materials. Davidson's Pre-Medicine Advisory Committee (PAC) provides a comprehensive student evaluation, which is a valuable–and recommended–addition to your medical school application materials.

The committee, chaired by the pre-medicine program director, typically evaluates students during the spring of their junior years. Summer evaluations are available only with permission.

The committee bases its evaluations on several factors:

  • Transcripts from all colleges of matriculation
  • Professional recommendations from evaluators chosen by students
  • Medical experience
  • Community service
  • Interviews with Pre-Medicine Advisory Committee members

The committee sends its evaluation to medical schools at your request. The evaluation sent includes:

  • A cover letter explaining the Pre-Medicine Advisory Committee evaluation process
  • Comments from the Pre-Medicine program director
  • Professional recommendations from chosen evaluators
