    My pre-med advisor is using virtual eval this cycle...I guess she scans my LOR and then sends them instantly to every school on my list and they can decide when they want to download them, and also I can look online and see when/if they download my letters! How cool is that? Has anyone else used this program and did you find that it was speedy or does it still take them weeks to process the letters...

    Go technology!

    Where can you see when and what schools download them online at?

    What is the link? My school didn't tell me anything about that.

    My school used VirtualEvals to collect and send my LORs last application cycle. As far as I understand it, the schools you apply to have access to your letters pretty much as soon as they are entered into the VirtualEvals system. It's really quick and easy, and I'm pretty sure speeds up the pace at which your application can be completed. I never had any isssues with it last year. Hope that helps.

    My advisor hasn't sent it yet but she told me I would be able to look and is going to send me the link when she gets finished...I'll post instructions once I figure it out.

    My premed advisor said only she can see which/if schools have DLed my packet yet. I think it's effective. LORs don't get lost in the mail and stuff.

    I think my advisor had said something about the UC's not taking them, not 100% sure though.

    University of Missouri┬ľKansas City School of Medicine (BS/MD program)

    Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine (primarily BS/MD program; however, since they do accept some regular applicants, we are working to recruit them for 2007)
