Does anybody know how ADCOMs handle AMCAS applications? Does a single individual review one application from beginning to end, or are individual sections of an application distributed to specific ADCOM members (i.e. there's Joe the PS guy, Jane the activities woman, and poor Biff the courses / transcript guy)?

I'm asking because there is information in my work experience / activities section that could go into my PS, but I don't want to include them if they are redundant and just take up valuable space.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

I've never heard of adcoms splitting up a single app to different people for ECs/PS/etc.
