    when applying to programs, do you have to specify whether you are applying for the 5- or 7-year program or are you accepted (hopefully) first and then forced to duke out for which of you will take the 5yr slots or the 7yr slots?
    thanks for the input.

    It can be either or. JHU, for instance, offers students the option of pursuing the extra two research years after you are accepted whereas WashU offers it up front (and has a separate ERAS code to boot). As you can imagine, the 7-year up-front programs are less popular than the five year ones for obvious reasons.

    Iowa has two ERAS codes (used to be SFmatch when I went through).
