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.

Personal Statement Reviews

Pre-Health students interested in having their personal statements for admissions to professional schools reviewed by the Pre-Health Advising Team must not have a rough draft. Students should first have their personal statements read by someone close to them, someone not close to them, and UF’s Writing Studio to ensure all grammatical and structural errors are corrected prior to their appointment. Personal statement reviews with the Pre-Health Advising Team should be reserved solely for high-level Pre-Health concerns, not grammatical.

Appointments for personal statement reviews can be scheduled for final feedback with the Pre-Health Advising Team via Bookings. Students must submit the final draft of their personal statement at least 48 hours prior to their appointment or it will be canceled, as sufficient timing is needed for advisor feedback.

If you are member of the UF Honors College, please utilize the Honors Pre-Health Advisors’ Bookings to book a personal statement review appointment.

Students are also able to receive aid utilizing the following resources:

Mock Interviews

At this time, the Pre-Health Advising Team is not offering mock interview appointments to instead prioritize personal statement reviews. Students in the UF Honors Program should check with the UF Honors Program website for Meredith Beaupre’s availability or schedule an appointment by clicking on the Advising Module in their Canvas cohort.

The Career Connections Center is available for mock interviews. For more information and scheduling, please visit their Prepare for an Interview page.
