  1. Hi guys! So to get straight to the point: I've never become buddy buddy or best friends with a prof. Sure there's profs I've sat near the front for or talked to a bunch of times after class, or had convo with them in a lab setting etc. But I don't think there's any profs that will have remembered me fully by name or have amazing things to say about things I've done. However, for a lab course, there is a TA that supervised two of my research projects in the course and I had a great relationship with. With the prof, I've known her for 2 years but I fear the letter would be very general (with maybe a few specific points), if they're writing many med school letters (which they likely are) I doubt I am the person they most want to succeed. With the TA, I think the letter would be more specific and hopefully more positive as I believe she genuinely liked me and we were friends in the lab course, but I've known only her half a year and they're a masters student. So, What's the say about having a TA as your academic reference rather than a prof? Pros/Cons? Which should I go with?
  2. I was wondering if my Letter-Writers will be given the list of schools to which I am applying. I generally wouldn't have a problem with them looking at the list. However, there is one school to which I'm applying just as the sort of dreamer option. As such, I would be a bit embarrassed if they saw that I was applying there. Edit: spelling

    Letters Of Rec

    For OMSAS and AMCASS, how does the uploading process for letters of recommendation work? Do references upload one letter for all of the schools to see, or do they upload a separate letter for each school? I ask because this year I am planing to apply to a large number of med schools (almost 20) through both OMSAS and AMCAS and will soon be asking for letters of recommendation. Should I tell my references to include the name of the med school in the letter? For example: "I am writing this letter to support (insert my name here) in applying to (insert med school name here)." Is including the name of the med school in the letter something that referees typically do, or do they just leave it generic and use the exact same letter for every school? Please include an answer for both OMSAS and AMCAS
