    I received a nice letter from one of the associate deans congratulating me for being in the top 25% of "most helpful PBL students."

    I basically have no other Medical School achievements, so I really wanted to include this nice letter as a Medical School Award in ERAS.

    What do you guys think? Thanks in advance!

      ummm.... no.
      It could maybe be a line in your personal statement, but that's about it.

        Sounds like something well-suited for your MSPE

          Does it have some kind of official name? If so, then go for it. But if it appears as "25% most helpful PBL student," then no.
