For sure, I guess I was just curious if med schools view different types of research differently. I suppose since I'm coming from a non hard science background I just have so many doubts about my application.
Personally I only used the Kaplan book the first time around and only scored a 20AA and then I used DAT Bootcamp as well as DAT Destroyer and it helped raised my scores. As the other poster said I believe DAT Bootcamp was worth the money for me and had wished I had used it the first time around.
On another note, do you just put the level of education you had when you first started the activity or do you put all levels of education? For example, I worked at a cafe from my first year of undergrad to my third year of undergrad. Do I put "1st year BSc" or 1st-3rd year BSc"?
So I'm not sure if this has happened to anyone yet but I may have an issue with my referee...
So I had asked them to write me a reference back in June and they had agreed. I tried to reach out to them around August to figure out where they were at and get an update but I received no reply. But I decide to trust them and wait it out. A couple weeks go by and I finally cave and find someone else as a referee. The original referee ends up contacting me so I keep them as a referee. Fast forward to this past Saturday where I attempted to get an update again, and the original referee doesn't reply again. Again I wait it out until today when I call them and they don't pick up. At this point, I am getting worried and so I contact the backup again and remove the original as a reference. The original ends up contacting me again and I explain to them the situation, they end up explaining their circumstances (which I obviously can't go into too much detail about), which ends up making me feel terrible as I should have trusted them. So now what do I do? I have possibly ruined my relationship with this person forever. Is all their progress lost on the reference forms? Is it possible to get it back?
I apologize for the long post or if this belongs elsewhere. Any advice is appreciated. What would you guys basically do in my situation?
Two of my verifiers were contacted tonight. I feel like it is early in the application process but UBC could do things differently and get right to it. Are the applications reviewed alphabetically? Has anyone else received notice from their verifiers about the university getting in touch? Let me know what you think.
