Please feel free to tag a pre-medical moderator once the secondary prompt has been posted.

Good luck to everyone applying!

Should I be using the maximum word limit for these essays? For the first question, I am sitting at around 250 words and am happy with what I have written, but I don't want it to look bad that I only used half of the allotted space.

My responses were about 300-450 each. There is no need to fluff, if you're happy then leave it. I just found that naturally answering the prompt left me in my range.

Can someone provide assistance for me? In the process of completing VCOM's secondary application. When entering the CV section, do we just need to list the place worked and title of position? In the instructions it states: "A short title/description ONLY is needed." The examples shown only list place worked and title of position so I was slightly thrown off by the 'description' piece in the instructions. Any help is greatly appreciated. TIA
 
My letters of reference have an x on them. Is anyone else having this issue?
 
for the CV portion, I should not list experiences that took place during college, just that i was in college from 2020-2024? (in my gap year now so i also added what i am doing for that) just want to make sure i do it right, thanks in advance!

Hi guys, I saw a recent chat and just wanted to double check, this is for the cycle starting in the fall of 2025 right? This website is completely new to me so i just want to make sure i'm in the right place.
