Career Center

Due to the size of the University of Michigan pre-health student body, in lieu of a formal pre-health committee, the University Career Center’s Reference Letter Service (RLS) serves as the centralized location for housing reference letters written in support of application to dental schools.  It is your responsibility to identify individuals to write reference letters on your behalf.

Upon your request, the RLS will forward your letters directly to individual dental schools and/or to the Associated American Dental Schools Application Service (AADSAS).  Please note that with the 2016-2017 application cycle, AADSAS will only accept letters sent electronically.   To indicate your intention to have your letters sent as a "packet" by the RLS:

  1. From within your AADSAS application complete the Evaluator's section as shown below and
  2. Submit a request to the RLS to send your letters to AADSAS.

For questions, please contact the RLS at 734/764-7459 during business hours (Monday-Friday, 8am–5pm) or send an e-mail to
