A primary task of this Dartmouth letter is to weave together and organize the most salient points offered by four-five professors’ individual reference letters penned in support of the student. This letter serves as a key component of a student’s medical school application. The student does not participate in this process. Sanjana Awasty received acceptance to four medical schools.
