Choose "Other" if your evaluation falls under the following categories.
NOTE: Some Veterinary Schools Do Not Accept Committee or Composite Letters. Be sure to check with your designated schools prior to submitted a committee letter or composite letter.
Composite Letters: At this time, the eLOR system does not support electronic composite letters. You must still submit composite letters in paper form with the necessary attachments. Please click on the following link: COMMITTEE / COMPOSITE EVALUATION FORM
to download the paper evaluation form. There must be equal numbers of evaluation forms for the number of letters being submitted (i.e., if you wish to have the composite letter count for three evaluations, it must have three evaluation forms submitted). To register a composite letter in the eLOR system, you should register one "other" for each evaluation that the composite letter is supposed to represent.
Committee Letters must be submitted in paper form with all necessary attachments. Please click on the following link:
