Applying for an HPAC Mock Interview or Letter

HPAC provides mock interviews and letters of recommendation (LORs) to qualified pre-health students.  Because these services are time consuming, to receive them, students must apply.  The basic structure of the HPAC application packet is described in Section II B of the HPAC Handbook.  Similarly, the criteria by which applications are assessed are described in Section IX B of the HPAC Handbook.  Please note, that the decision to apply to HPAC for a mock interview and/or LOR should be made in consultation with your HPAC Advisor.  Applications are time consuming for students to produce and time consuming for faculty to review.  Therefore, HPAC discourages the submission of applications by students who have not been encouraged to do so by their HPAC Advisor
