Im sending my Pre-medical Committee letter of recommendation out to every school (which has my MD/PhD recommenders included). I guess this would be mostly school specific; however, does anyone know if the MD/PhD committee requires those specific letters to be sent separately? I just found that Pitt wants the letters separately; though, after looking through all the reqs at other schools, I could not find any others that deemed it necessary to do so. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Additionally, I was told to communicate with schools to check about application completion, (apparently, it is supposed to show interest ) Though, almost all of the schools have been sending e-mails where they explicitly say not to contact them. Is it a myth that they record every time that you touch base them? Lastly, does MD app completion mean MD/PhD app completion? Thanks for any comments guys!
