    So, some of my professors and research advisers have asked me about the format of the LOR and I don't know what to tell them. One even told me to basically write it myself and they would put in more (he's lazy). So, I know there's no explicit format.. but what should I say? Anyone have input?

    i'm not sure what you mean by "accepted" format. it's very close to an actual letter that a physician i shadowed wrote for me. not saying it's a great letter, but if your letter-writer is too lazy to come up with something original, it's a lot better than whatever else you could expect from them :)

    Anyone else have any input or comments on what they've had written about them?

    Our prehealth advisers gave us this to give to our recommenders, i thought it was good and thorough.
