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.
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 Ani Kellermann at email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
UF Pre-health advising is once again offering reviews of personal statements for admission to professional schools. Students are permitted one review of a statement either remote or in-person. This should be your final version of your personal statement and we encourage you to utilize the following resources in order to prepare your personal statement before meeting with us.
- Writing Center
- Career Connections Center
- CAS Application Event recorded from February 2023—(application prep and info, pre-recorded workshops, interviews, Am I A Competitive Applicant, Writing Components, and Choosing Schools)
Reviews will be held remote or in person with a Pre-Health advisor for students who are applying this cycle. Students must submit their personal statement via a Google Drive, Dropbox or One Drive link while scheduling the appointment so the advisor can read the statement ahead of time to provide feedback during the 30 minute appointment.
