Letters of Recommendation

Three (3) letters of recommendation are required in support of your application to the Master of Biostatistics Program. Letters should be submitted electronically using the ApplyYourself process used to submit your application.

Please request letters of recommendation from persons best qualified to testify to your capacity for graduate work. It is always our preference to have academic references representing your major field, though we realize that there are situations where this may not be possible. In such circumstances, we encourage students to seek out those persons who can comment on qualities that will be relevant to academic pursuits, particularly biomedical research.

NOTE: We strongly discourage you from requesting more than the required number of recommendations unless the program has asked to see additional recommendations. Rather than improving your chances of admission, an excessive number of recommendation letters may actually cause application reviewers to view your file unfavorably.
