AMCAS and AACOMAS - The Health Professions Office will be using the AMCAS and the AACOMAS portal to process your letters. These services require that you choose either "Letter Packet" OR "Committee Letter." You should choose "Letter Packet." The packet will only contain letters of recommendation on file in your HPOdrome account.
The letters will be coming from the HPO and should be entered as follows in the evaluation section of the online application.

When assigning a deadline on AACOMAS, please select a date at least four weeks between handing in your DO release form and the actual release of your letters. Please be aware that during our busiest times (July through September) the may be a longer wait.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Both DO applicants (using the AACOMAS portal) and Dental applicants (using the AADSAS portal) will NOT be able to add letters once they are sent. It is very important to make sure all letters have arrived in the HPO before signing our release form. All letters must go together at the same time.
In addition to completing your online applications, please remember to:
1. Confirm that ALL your expected letters of recommendation have been received in your HPOdrome online file. (click here for HPOdrome)
2. Complete/sign the appropriate HPO Release Form(s) (click here for release forms). All release forms can be found under HPO forms.
4. Submit your release form(s) processing fees via SchoolPay. The fee for MD, DO and Dental Release Forms is $60.00 each. All payments should be made through the SchoolPay links found next to each release form on the HPO Forms webpage.
