A quick question that I bet someone asked before (but I couldn't find it with search): Is it safe to assume that everybody reading my personal statements (for MD and MD/PhD) will know what ER refers to? I also assumed that they should know what DNA, RNA, and PCR are.

I'm doing my final revisions and struggling to fit everything into the character limit. :cool:

instead of ER, use ED. the ER doesn't exist in real life, only on TV.

Yes, of course. No one wants to mistake smooth ER for rough ER.

"Some of my best experiences have come from volunteering in the RER."
