I am in similar situation with same question and unfortunately could not find any answers however I am applying to AEGDIMMEDIATE 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.
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....I am in similar situation with same question and unfortunately could not find any answers however I am applying to AEGD
Have you guys gotten emails back from any programs after submitting? How about asking for a 2x2 (or are we expected to reach out first)
Yeah, I got the exact email too. I just email them right back with the info that they've requestedGot 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?
Some programs have September deadlines, some October and November. I would check the individual deadlines for programs you're interested in since PASS doesn't close til 2021 i believe.Do you guys think it's too late to apply to programs? I changed my mind and would actually like to pursue an AEGD.
