Q: To whom should a medical school letter of intent be addressed?
A: A letter of intent should be addressed to either the dean of admissions or the director of admissions or both. Do not address a letter of intent to the admissions committee. Do your research to find out who’s in charge.
Q: What should the subject line be?
A: I do recommend emailing letters of intent as either the body of the email or as a PDF attachment.
The subject line should be your name. So for me I would write, Jessica Freedman: Letter of Intent. Also remember to include the following:
1) Association of American Medical Colleges ID number
2) The date when you interviewed
3) The people whom you interviewed with if the interview format was traditional, one on one. If you had an MMI interview or panel interview listing interviewers would not be posslble. If you interviewed with 2-3 people you’d want to include their names in the letter so they can identify you.
If you’ve been in touch with your interviewers, then you may want to cc them when sending a letter of intent. They are the people who will hopefully advocate for you.
