Dear Admissions Committee,
I would like to request a waiver of the GRE exam requirement, as I can demonstrate evidence of sufficient quantitative and verbal skills.
Prior to medical school, I participated in the university’s intensive, year-long preparatory program, studying linear algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus and probability. I graduated with highest honors, first in my class out of over 200 students, and received a scholarship for the first year of medical school. As a freshman, I was selected to teach in that very same program.
Additionally, during medical school, my courses included chemistry, physics and statistics, each relying heavily on quantitative analyses. For my final thesis, I heavily employed data analysis and statistical models.
During medical school, our large volume of reading material was in English, and we regularly presented summaries and conclusions before the class. I also wrote two major research theses, which required reading, absorbing and incorporating a great deal of data in English. Currently, I am co-writing a scientific article in English with two doctors.
Regarding critical thinking abilities, during my medical internship, I was trained to draw conclusions from partial information, prioritize quickly and distinguish between the important and the unimportant.
I thank you for your consideration.
