    "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?

    It was a while ago but I'm pretty sure I wrote fall/spring. I'm sure either way would be fine though

    What did you guys do if the course number doesn't fit? Put the department or the number by itself?

    I never experienced a situation like that, but I would recommend just typing up however much you can, starting from department number until max limit of the course number.

    @zimzamzoop I think its more about competency. so if you've taken two courses that your school either calls a writing class or that is writing intensive by nature then I would list them

    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.

    Hi all,

    For the MSTP application, do you have to complete all questions including the MSTP only question?

    Thanks!

    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.

    Over a month ago because apparently I have no tact, but I guess it worked out in my favor so I can't complain!

    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!

    Does anyone know what the deal is with student hosting? Is it just not available here?

    99% sure yes. I know of multiple MD students who did research at Rockefeller, which is the other affiliated institution.

    I called Sinai and Einstein about this today and they said to upload a document to the secondary and email admissions, respectively.

    II today as well! I sent an ITA email within the past few days; this quick turnaround is super impressive. WCMC admissions team, if you're reading this: thank you for being so accommodating!

    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 you schedule yours via email or was there a page on the portal to select dates? Mine literally ONLY has that message and nothing else.
