i submitted two days ago, but i think that next week is a fine time to submit. i figure submitting about a month after they make it available will suffice.

I submitted about two weeks ago and I just got an email saying that my application is complete and is being reviewed.

I'm not talking about the essay... I'm talking about the space given for Professors names', course names, and stuff like that. You're not meant to attach extra files for that stuff.

What did you guys do for the essay? Just basically edit the hell out of you personal statement? Anyone applying MSTP? The two essays kind of overlap a bit.

i don't think they overlap much at all - hopefully i'm lookin at the right essay. the mstp is about role models and objectives which seems prospective, as opposed to motivations, which seems more retrospective and introspective. lots of -tives in this.

Well,
in my first essay I wrote about the satisfactions of discovering new treatments and implementing those treatments into the clinic to have a direct impact, which is really the same as my goal as a physician/scientist, so I feel they do overlap somewhat.
