Can letters of recommendation writers see /have access to my MCAT when they upload their letter.

    I am just wondering cause mine wants to see it, so if they cannot see it in AMCAS when they upload their letter I will include it in my resume.
  2. SDN Members don't see this ad. About the ads.

    I'm fairly certain they don't have access to any part of your AMCAS application.

    FERPA protects your information, so no, only admissions officers at the schools you designate can see your scores.

    Your letter writers receive no information beyond what you provide them. Basically, make sure they have access to enough information that they can write a convincing letter on your behalf. Also, if they are not familiar with the medical admissions process, it may be a good idea to provide them information that you may think is general knowledge (e.g. Telling your English professor you got a 44 on your MCAT may not impress them like you think it would... whereas telling them you scored in the top 0.01% might).
