I don't believe that for the first question, AMCAS allows you to PICK if you can pick the format of the date. You have a drop down menu, and when you click on it, you will see the months spelled out. so you will have Jan, 2001 not 1/01.

    Also, for contact NAME you put down the name, PhD. For contact TITLE you put down the title they have, at the organization you were involved with. For my contact titles, I am just putting down director etc.

I wasn't talking about the format, just the interval. i.e. if it's 06/01/01-08/15/01, i'd put down June 2001 - Aug 2001, or June 2001 - Sept 2001 (whatever the format may be in the amcas application).

    So for the name, you'd put that they were Assistant Prof. of Bio instead of "Advisor" for your research project (if you did research)?

    In your specific example, I'd go with June 2001 - Aug 2001. Reason being, IN CASE they do contact your advisor, we don't want them to see that your prof said "Yogi finished in Aug" when you had put down Sept. That would be a really sticky position, know what i mean?

    Also for the title, again in your specific case, I'd put down "Adviser for Research project" instead of the title the person holds at the Univ. the reason being is that they want to know in what capacity this person worked with you, probably not what they do at the Univ. At my Univ, we have profs who are advisers for a project, but we really end up working for somebody else. In such a situation, again, it would be best for the med school to see "in what capacity" this person was involved with you.

    I may be wrong on this, but that's what I am doing. :)
