I am done with the application procedure other than pre-med committee letter and I am dying to wait for committee letter...
It will be printed out late September...

I am likely to be finished with all application by late August or early September if I send each professor letters to schools...

I don't want to be nervous with incomplete application...

Do you guys want to give any advice? Which is better, late committee letter or somewhat early individual professor letters?

Do we have to prepare for committee letter? How much more effective and persuasive is the committee letter than each professor letter?

From my previous experience of applying to dental schools, it seems the committee letter would be a good thing to have.

If I was in your shoes, I'd do both-- Get your professors' letters in first then wait leisurely for the committee letters. The name of the game is cover all bases and leave nothing to chance.

Good luck!

Committee letters are always a bonus in many ways. For example, many schools require 2 science prof. letters, but I didn't have those because I am an English major. Those same schools accept a committee letter, however. In my situation, it made it much easier for me.

By the way, you should talk your preprofessional committee into doing letters earlier in the year. Our committee interviewed us in February, and had the letters complete (with the exception of DAT scores) by May.
