Yes on the activities. The transcript is automatically uploaded by your school. However, getting LoRs is much worse than it was for AMCAS IMO.does it also ask you to list all your activities and give a blurb like AMCAS?? or how about typing out your entire transcript like the AMCAS requires??
AMCAS was dreadful!! I can't image how bad the ERAS process will be!
yeah, mine will want it too, but I haven't gotten any yet. I've asked two people, but I haven't met with them yet to put the paperwork through.I did my PS last month because some of my LoR writers wanted it and I figured it wouldn't hurt to actually do something early for once in my life.
I'm trying not to make my application too fluffy by including lots of irrelevant crap. At this point, I assume that everyone has seen many levels of bull, and they're not going to be faked out by anything I've got. So I'm sticking to the truth.Im filling it out now and i'm wondering whether to include every little half day volunteering experience. What do yall think?
Depends on what you're applying to. Some specialties (like FM) have rolling interview offers, so it's advantageous to get everything in an complete early. Other specialties (typically the more competitive ones) have deadlines in October and don't download any of their applications until that time, then sift through to see what they got before offering interviews. Best to ask your home institutions PD where you field lies on the spectrum.I'm still working on my PS and letters too...any idea of a general date this stuff should be in by?
