  • A copy of the common application you submitted electronically (AMCAS, TMDSAS, AACOMAS, AADSAS, or VMCAS).

Please put your name and AMCAS ID in the subject line of your email, and send it to gs-amcas@columbia.edu.
  • A list of schools that do not participate in the common application (if applicable).
  • For schools that do not participate in an online application process, please submit:
    • 9x12 self-seal envelopes with 3 first class stamps addressed to the schools to which you are applying that do NOT participate in the professions common application (please write your UNI on the inside of each envelope flap).  Please place self-addressed stamped postcard (to serve as verification that the packet was received) inside each envelope, stating This will confirm receipt of application packet at _____________.
  • Verification of clinical work hours (if not already submitted)
  • All letters of recommendation.  Note: As long as you have submitted all other required materials by June 30, you will not be penalized if letters of recommendation from Columbia faculty (and others) have not been received by this date. It is unlikely that missing letters will pose a practical problem for the writing of committee letters before the middle of July.
