I was under the impression that programs didn't review applications until after their deadlines. Do certain programs invite via a rolling admissions process?
Yeah, follow-up to this (I guess directed @PhansterZ) is whether or not LSU-Shreve is even going to review apps with updated CBSE scores after the 17th if they already have sent out invites.

There is no guideline required through ADEA PASS or NatMatch that forbids review of complete applications before a certain date. As long as the application cycle opens, programs can view your application

We review apps as they come in. We are doing it on a rolling basis and will review apps after the CBSE scores are updated. Our interview dates this year are September 27-28, and October 4-5, so we can accommodate many competitive applicants.

Does anyone know if it's easier to get into hospital based programs versus academic programs? Taking the CBSE this August, my GPA from dental school was 3.53, and I'm currently in a GPR.

tl;dr there's probably not much difference

Interesting question. It's tough to paint with such broad strokes. I don't think you could say one category is tougher than the other. You could probably say that with 4 vs 6, because you usually have to be accepted into the partner medical school (and they look very closely at CBSE since they have to make sure you can pass steps 1, 2, and 3), but probably not with hospital-based vs academic (and remember - some programs are mixed). And even the whole 4 vs 6 thing isn't as simple as one being harder than the other. Some 4-year programs are more competitive than some 6-year programs - it really depends on the program's reputation, the location, etc. The best possible advice anyone could give you is to smoke the CBSE and then you won't have to GAF about limiting your search to programs that are in your wheelhouse. Just drill down and drink in that FA and whatever other resources you're spending your time on.

Thank you so much, I appreciate your reply.

Can the institutional evaluation (IE) be added to ADEA PASS after the application is submitted? Couldn't find definitive information with regards to this anywhere. Thanks.
Yes. I have contacted the PASS and they have said programs can have access to the later submitted letters after the applications are submitted.

As long as it is requested before submitting, you should be fine.

Where are people uploading their CBSE on PASS? Half the programs say upload everything to PASS, but in past years you were able to upload an unlimited number of documents under the resume section.

I added it onto the end of my CV. Some programs may ask you to send your score directly to their program.

If you download the application that gets sent out, you can see that it really doesn't matter where you put it. Either as an undergrad or part of the CV etc, it just is another page on the application.

May be a dumb question, but how many programs have supplemental apps that need to be completed outside the PASS website?
