IMMEDIATE HELP NEEDED:
hey everyone, I applied for a specialty and now I am trying to apply to GPR programs. my LORs are focused more towards the specialty and I can't upload new once.
Is anybody here in a similar situation? any idea how to fix this or how it will affect the strength of my application for GPR programs?
any feedback is highly appreciated.
Thank you

1)I can only speak for myself, but letters of recommendation are just a piece of the puzzle. If they were specific to a specialty, I would not discount them, but use them the same as personal statement, transcript, etc to get a big picture of the candidate. My only caveat would be if your letter says "John Doe is ONLY good at endo and cant prep a tooth to save his life...." that probably wouldn't be great....

2) We don't EXPECT anyone who applies to reach out (except to submit required materials), but it does show interest if they do.

Refreshing my email 1903813901209381283213 times a day for AEGD interview invites.

I applied to UTHSCSA, SA VA, Texas A&M, UF St. Pete and Orlando VA! Fingers crossed!

Good luck everyone!

Got an Email that this particular GPR will be sending invites out soon. The end of the email notes: " It is essential that we have a passport type photograph, your match code number and your DAT scores to attach to your application. If you have not already done so please send this material directly to __________ to my attention "

Question: I don't want to interpret that last line the wrong way but these definite means email it to them right?

No, sadly the Microsoft Teams ID wasn't working for me :/. What kind of stuff did he go over?
Here are a few pics I took of his slides! Hope this helps! The presentation and questions made me so fired up! This looks like an incredible program
