    The AACOMAS PS is shorter than the AAMC one. I think that the AAMC is something like 5000 characters while the AACOMAS is 3500 characters or something like that. I used a modified version of my AAMC PS for AACOMAS. You can send them whenever you want once they open. You don't have to send them at the same time if you do not want to.

    I reworked my AACOMAS PS cause it was so much shorter. I wish they gave us as much room as the AMCAS one.

    Yea just do your AMCAS one and then modify it and shorten for AACOMAS. You can add a little paragraph about DOs if you want.:thumbup:

    I wonder why the AACOMAS is shorter? I felt like I didn't have enough space to say all that I wanted to say.

    Oh, and I also shorten my AMCAS one and added my DO interest.

    I think it is 3000 characters with spaces! Correct me if I am wrong, but I remember having to edit it many many times!
