"Enter the name(s) and institutional affiliation(s) of evaluators who will send letters individually to AMCAS, not as part of a packet. List only letters from the three most relevant sources. If you are submitting a premed packet or a packet through a Careers Office, enter only the school's name."

i have a committee letter. does this mean i only put my school name unter the "evaluator name" and leave the affiliation blank?

Does anyone know if the admissions committee is lenient on the writing requirements?

My two courses were a writing abnormal psych course (classified as a writing class by my university), and a philosophy class which is writing intensive. My worry is that I don't have an english lit class which they supposedly require because I wasn't planning on taking that GE until spring semester (but Cornell requires that prereqs are finished by Fall).

Did you ask and get any word back on that? I'm on a similar boat

Yeah so I called and they said any class classified as a writing course by your university will automatically count. In terms of english literature, the answer they gave me was pretty ambiguous but overall they said they were pretty lenient with requirements so i went ahead and listed a different class where all grades were writing assignments. Hopefully they accept them, but if not, I can't really do much about it now.

Any idea when II start coming out, and if the school is receptive to ITA emails?

They're for sure receptive since they sent me a form email saying they would consider my ITA request and add it to my file!

Edit: I haven't gotten an II to be clear.

I sent them an ITA email yesterday, received a nice response today saying they had noted it in my file.

ii just now! They honored my ITA request so I'm super grateful to save some $$ + also to interview at this dope school (complete 7/10)
Oh wow that's awesome! I have an interview in upstate NY later. I might send them an ITA request to package the two interview's together. Congrats!

II! My ITA request was honored as well, which is shocking from a top school.

Do regular Cornell MD students (NOT MD/PhD) have access to research opportunities at Memorial Sloan?

Anyone else having trouble finding info about medical student research opportunities on their website?? I'm getting "page not found" when I try to click a link that should talk about their research opportunities.

Exciting to see so many folks that sent ITA requests got an interview. I'll be back in New England in October so hopefully I hear something from WCMC before then!

For those that received an II - did you get an email? I just happened to check my portal and the status page says "Please contact our Office of Admissions to schedule an interview" and gives the admissions email - but I never received an email or anything inviting me to interview.

Did anyone who sent an ITA request and a subsequent interview get a response back saying it was added to your file? Or just directly the interview? Seems like this is their nice way of telling me I won't get an II lmao
