MSPE Meeting

Schedule An Appointment with MSPE Writer

During the month of May, students should schedule an appointment (May/June) with their assigned MSPE letter writer to discuss their academic record. All appointments should be completed prior to June 30th.

Appointments can be scheduled through MyUpstate. Students will receive an email prompting them to make appointments, with directions on how to do so. Subsequent appointments should be scheduled directly with the MSPE letter writer.  The MSPE is not a letter of recommendation.  Rather, it is an evaluation that includes a summary of the first two years of medical school, narratives from your third-year course instructors and rank in class after three years (only the third year if you are a transfer student). USMLE scores are included.  MSPE letter writers will write this letter for you after your meeting.  The earliest date for releasing MSPE’s is October 1st.  This includes ERAS, "early" matches and the Armed Services match.
