    I am registered under my Chinese name, however, everyone knows me as my English name.
    I just realized that two of my letter writers have written my English name into my LORs instead of my Registered chinese name.

    How much of an issue would this be?

    For those who choose applicants, has a name ever affected your decision? (Chinese name vs an english name).

    No. Should not be an issue.

    Back when I applied for med schools under AMCAS, it was possible to specify a preferred name on the application. Maybe you can see if that's possible on ERAS?
