+1 that was so fast I'm not ready for this cycle to officially start :oops:
 
For prompt #4, are people mentioning several of their volunteer experiences or just highlighting 1 (or something else)? Thanks!

For anyone who has this error, I created my account using a different email than the one they sent the original link to. Using the e-mail they sent the link to fixed the problem.

I mentioned a few cuz they all highlighted my "strongest" category. I only chose ones that I had a lot to say on

So I'm assuming we use one of the current competencies that cartonnetworkkid posted and not one of the old ones that were labeled as interpersonal/intrapersonal core competencies, right?

Honestly, good point. I was going based on the recent ones, as that's what AAMC says that schools will use this cycle. It is possible the secondary question was just not updated to match this change. It may be worth reaching out to their admissions office regarding which ones they want us to use.

If someone does get a reply, I'd appreciate y'all sharing it here!
 
Does WVU have a regional preference?

"Preference for non-residents includes ties to WV, WVU, and/or a rural community or the Appalachian region, as it is believed that they are more likely to contribute to the health care programs of the state in the future."

Reading prior threads, it seems like it's common for OOS applicants to this school while they try to prioritize the IS applicants. The 2022-23 thread says to expect movement on this WL by November.

Strap in folks.

Do they only accept/look at 1 LOR? If we send multiple, will they just read the first one they see?
They only accept 1. I went to their open house and they said they made it a rule in order to be more fair to non-trad students who might not have connections to professors from their past.
