Now that it's getting close to Halloween, we're running a contest to hear your scariest stories! These can be scary stories that you've experienced or stories that you've heard and the story with the most reactions will win!
Will you write about being first-gen in your essays? If so, that's a way you could get it in your application without saying "Uh, oops, also, I forgot to put this in my primary application." I feel like your SES disadvantaged status is essentially the same as Pell-Grant received, so I don't think that's a huge deal.
Another thing that you could do is contact admissions and let them know about the mistake and have them update your primary application that way. I'm not sure if that's possible but I think that would actually probably be a good move and a way to not waste space on your secondaries. EDIT: You might have to call each school and ask them how they want you to update that information. Like, does school X want a letter but school Y can just update it then and there?
Not exactly correct. If the highest education acheived was done abroad, the AAMC will not make a EO (Education/Occupation) designation. The classification doesn't really matter for the individual applicant but misclassification would contribute to inaccuracy of the AAMC's data.
Correct. It shows up on the application. AAMC will add a EO designation (EO-1, EO-2, etc) based on your parents' education and occupation, if your parents were educated in the States. " *AMCAS does not determine international equivalencies for education or occupation information." See: Appendix 1 Socioeconomic Status (SES) Disadvantaged Indicator on page 70 of the 2021 AMCAS Applicant Guide.
