Faculty Information

UF faculty members occasionally will be asked by students applying to professional schools to write letters of recommendation. We have compiled information that should prove helpful.

Mock Interviews

If you have been invited to an interview at a professional school you can make an appointment for a mock interview with a pre-health advisor. Appointments are 30 minutes in length and will include a simulation of a real interview along with feedback for improving your interviewing skills. Students should come professionally dressed. Please email Laurie Tejada at to schedule an appointment. Before your appointment you will need to provide a copy of your interview invitation, personal statement, and resume at least 2 days in advance. If this information is not provided your appointment will be canceled. In the event of an emergency or if you need to reschedule your appointment for any reason, you must email at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled time. If you fail to cancel your appointment at least 24 hours in advance, you may no longer be able to schedule future mock interview appointments. Appointment times are limited during peak periods. The Career Connection Center is also available for mock interviews. Students in the UF Honors Program who wish to speak with Meredith Beaupre for pre-health advising can check the Honors Program website or schedule an appointment by clicking on the Advising Module in their Canvas cohort.

Personal Statement Review

We are currently not accepting personal statements for review. This process is being updated to better meet student needs and we will release information closer to the end of February 2023. We will plan to begin reviewing statements again in March 2023 via in person or Zoom appointment.
