The purpose of GW’s Health Professions Advisory Committee (HPAC), which consists of pre-health advisors and faculty members from the sciences and social sciences, is to:
- Help applicants with the application process for medical, dental, veterinary, optometry, or podiatry school.
- Help applicants self-assess their own candidacy on top of getting detailed feedback from the committee.
Successfully completing the HPAC process may result in a letter packet for qualifying students. A letter packet is comprised of:
- A coversheet with the committee's evaluation of the student's candidacy
- Individual letters of recommendation submitted on the student's behalf to PrivateFolio.
Please note: The letter packet may be provided only after the student completes all application requirements, a subsequent HPAC interview, an HPAC follow-up appointment and is evaluated by the committee at the "meets expectations" level or higher.
