Post-baccalaureate programs using an electronic application system

  1. Name: Melissa Hoppe
  2. Title: Recommendation File Coordinator
  3. Name of Institution: Northwestern University
  4. Relationship to Student: Managed/Compiled Letters of Recommendation Packet

*Please note that the above information is not applicable for electronic post-baccalaureate applications that require the listed recommender to evaluate a student’s performance. Our office does not provide that service.
