oops....i totally forgot about sending transcripts to columbia and nyu....arggh.. won't matter if my app comes in early since it takes a week for my transcript request to reach community colllege i attended in hs, and another week for them to process and send to columbia...argghh...
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.
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.
Hey I heard that it doesnt matter when we submit our Collumbia app because they only send out invitation on two dates. ANyone hear this or know anyhtihng???? Im confused, I thought I had till like late August to submit this.
ALso, do we have to have our recs in before they look at the app??? Im waiting for a summer one.
