    Hi, I'm just wondering if it would be a good idea to send a letter to a medschool informing them of you grades/extra curric's for the summer? Like right after the secondaries.

    Usually you can do that on secondaries or at the interview....I don't know about the letter though, sorry :confused:

    But you should definitely send a transcript if you are taking summer courses (and your grades are good <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> )

    Do you mean plans for this coming summer or last summer? Are you waitlisted places?

    I don't think it can hurt at this point to send an update letter reconfirming your interest in the school and letting them know any additional information you can. Some schools might not even look at the letters, but some others see them as a sign of continued interest.

    I'm applying to 2003, so maybe when I send back the secondaries I can update the schools with what I've done over the summer?
