The letter of intent is written communication that you can send to a residency program director expressing your deep interest in their training program. If done well, the letter can elevate your position on the program's rank order list, increasing your chances of matching.


Although some programs may not be influenced by this type of communication, one survey showed that 29% of program directors would consider ranking an applicant higher if they received post-interview communication that went beyond a thank-you note. 


Once you decide to send a letter of intent, your next step is to ensure that the letter you create makes the impression you seek. Too often, these letters fail to make an impact.


We have considerable experience editing letters of intent, and we can ensure that your letter highlights the type of information that will resonate with program directors.


Since this is the last communication you will have with the program, you must stand out. And our letter of intent editing service will help you do just that. 


How it works


Step 1: Purchase the service from our online store.


Step 2: We will send you a letter of intent questionnaire to complete.  These questions are designed to help us identify key content that will make your letter even more compelling. 


Step 3: Send the completed questionnaire to us at


Step 4: After we receive this information, we will edit the letter of intent and then return it to you (all letter of intents are reviewed by Dr. Samir Desai)


Step 5: We will make revisions as needed until you are satisfied.


Please note that this service includes drafting and editing of one letter of intent (for a single residency program).
