I have been copying and pasting from Google Docs to prepare my secondary responses and thought it was working without error. Today I noticed one of my apps had questions marks in place of double quotations. How do medical schools see this? Do they dismiss it as a technological error or an error on part of the applicant? Do they think the applicant is unable to follow directions? Many secondaries recommend you use Notepad to write responses if you plan on copying and pasting, but I've noticed when I copy and paste into Notepad from Google Docs my punctuation looks fine. Only after submitting do I see the errors. I also really like working from Google Docs because I can work from anywhere. Does anyone know what the admissions committees think when they see question marks in place of correct punctuation?
