Last Minute ERAS Question - Different Tracks, Different PS and LORs?

Hi all-

With Monday fast approaching, I had a last minute ERAS question I'm hoping others who went through this process in the past can quickly answer.

There are a couple of programs I'm applying to that have multiple curricular tracks with separate ERAS numbers (like a Community Health track, Primary Care track, and normal Categorical track). In anticipation of applying to these programs, I changed parts of my "categorical program" personal statement to better relate to these tracks. However, when I go to assign personal statements and letters of recommendation in the ERAS portal, it looks like I can only select one personal statement per program (NOT per track, even though they have separate ERAS numbers).

Basically, I'm wondering if I'm missing something or if it actually is true that you can only have one personal statement per PROGRAM not program TRACK.

Thanks all! And good luck to everyone this season!

I'm fairly certain you can only have one personal statement per program, as usually they decide if they want you at all first, and then if they want you in the track, and people generally apply to both the track and the categorical program.
