Applying to Medical School

Can a Teaching Assistant Write My Letter?

Generally, medical schools do not accept letters of recommendation written by teaching assistants (TAs). You want professors to write your letters, just to be safe. However, your TA can write you a letter if your professor signs or co-signs it. This is a good option if you have a great relationship with your TA.
