Please accept the following as a committee letter in support of the admission of Mickey Mouse into medical school. I have become well acquainted with Mickey during the past three years by way of my service as PreKHealth Professions Advisor at the University of P. Mickey recently completed a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biological Sciences and he has done quite well academically since deciding to pursue a career in medicine. The earliest portion of Mickey's academic record contains some mediocre grades, but Mickey went on to do well in the basic science classes that can serve as indicators of a candidate's potential for success in medical school coursework. I am aware of the surprisingly low score Mickey obtained on his initial attempt at the MCAT, but I am confident that Mickey will obtain a much higher score on the test following completion of adequate selfKstudy. During his semesters at UP Mickey has displayed the maturity and communication skills essential for success as a medical student and physician.Mickey has used his medical volunteer and shadow opportunities to improve his understanding of health care delivery, and during our conversations he has revealed an impressive level of knowledge of local, national, and international aspects of medicine. Mickey's work as a mountaineering guide indicates that he is able to maintain his composure during very stressful situations; it is likely that he would remain productive no matter what kind of medical crisis he encountered. I am certain that medical personnel and patients will enjoy their interactions with Mickey and, because I do not feel that his low, MCAT score is a good indicator of his academic skills, I feel comfortable in recommending him for entry into medical school.
