Letters of Recommendation

As each school requires recommendations, you can send out your letters by using the AADSAS letter service. AADSAS prefers that letter writers submit their letter online. No additional fee is charged.

What you need to do 

  1. Contact professors and dentists to see if they are interested in writing a recommendation letter for you.

  2. If they agree, get their e-mail address which they use most frequently.

  3. List their e-mail addresses on the application form online under “Evaluators” section. View a screenshot.

  4. As soon as you post letter writers’ names and e-mail addresses, AADSAS will send an e-mail to them. It is important to let your letter writers know they will be receiving e-mail from AADSAS. Ask them to check their junk mail box regularly.

  5. You can submit up to 4 letters.

    1. Science Professor
    2. Science / non-Science Professor 
    3. Dentist
    4. Dentist / Supervisor
  6. Monitor the status of AADSAS receipt of evaluations in My Application Status on the front page of your AADSAS Application. You may make revisions to this section at any time during the application process.

Learn more about the about the Recommendation Letter process from ADEA.


What your letter writers need to do

  1. As soon as they receive an e-mail from AADSAS, they will be directed to AADSAS Evaluators portal.

  2. They will be asked to provide their contact information only the first time, even if they evaluate multiple students.

  3. Based on step by step instruction available on the web portal, they can post their recommendation letters. (Evaluators have the option of submitting letter electronically or by mailing a paper letter to AADSAS)
