    here's what they say:

    Letters of Recommendation: Letters from your college Pre-medical Advisory Committee or a college letter service are preferred. You may disregard the waiver forms if a committee or letter service is available. If your college does not have such a committee, appropriate letter writers include science/non-science instructors, employers, community service agency directors/coordinators, and faculty members supervising undergraduate/graduate research experience. No more than THREE letters of recommendation will be accepted. Please indicate in this application which letters we can expect.

    Hi,
    I still haven't received a secondary from UC Davis. :(
    When and how did you get your request and since when did they have your AMCAS & UC apps?
    Thanks!

    They say they only want three letters, but if your school has a letter service, you can send them your entire file.

    help! i'm trying to do my secondary and am wondering about the hours of involvement you have to check for this section. are they talking about hours involved in up until now? or do they want you to project future hours into your estimate? they say they are comparing it w/ amcas which let you put future activities. hmmm.... i started putting the hours until now, but i'm confused...
     
  10. Hi Lola.

    When I filled mine out, I put the hours up until now. Hope that helps... :)

    i have a question, too.
    There is a part that asks whether you are employed in each academic year. If i started working on a job around the end of my freshman year and worked through sophomore year and eventually ended working there at the beginning of my junior year, should i still say that I was working there in my freshman and/or junior year? or should i just say that i worked there in my sophomore year?

    the thing is that it's hard to decide what to say when employment status changes DURING one academic year....

    plz advise. Thank you.
     
  13. I don't think its that important...I would just say that I worked all of sophomore year and some of junior year. You can explain any discrepancies in the interview. Just be honest. :)
