Grad School Letters

Medical/Dental/Grad school letters:

The Knight Institute will provide you with a letter (you make copies) stating that a First-Year Writing Seminar taken at Cornell is the equivalent of a semester of English composition. Usually, this is all a graduate school needs in addition to your transcript; a syllabus from the course is usually not necessary.

Please fill out the ENTIRE form below and send it to The Knight Institute . (Incomplete forms will be returned to you for completion, delaying your application.)
