I am starting my D3 year and am putting together an application to extern at a few programs, but something that I have seen on several school's websites was that they want you to provide them with a letter of intent. In my experience letters of intent are usually reserved for your first-choice program that you have interviewed with and are currently applying to. In terms of externships, what are OS programs looking for in a letter of intent, and is it appropriate to send a letter of intent to multiple programs??

Any advice or insight is greatly appreciated,
Thanks in advance!

They want to know why you’re doing the externship. What you hope to get out of the experience. Kinda like a personal statement. It’s not a commitment to the program or anything like that.
