TIP FOR SUCCESS:
We communicate with applicants through ERAS, therefore, do not wait until your application is complete before entering it into ERAS. Should we have important information to relay to applicants and you have only loaded your CV, you will receive that information, but if you are not in the system you will miss that update.
Needless to say, it has been an interesting year that has presented us with curious challenges as well as opportunities for creativity and innovation. While we, in partnership with the AAMC, work to ensure a smooth and equitable interview season, one thing remains unchanged. This year is an election year, and as we will not be conducting interviews on Tuesday, November 3, we believe that, as an organization, we cannot over-stress how imperative it is that you, as applicants, as future leaders, exercise your right to vote on that day. If you are currently not registered to vote, click here. Additionally, at this point, it is virtually impossible for you to know where you will be on election day, so we also strongly encourage you to investigate your particular state's provisions for absentee voting and, if an option, sign up now. In many areas, signing up for absentee voting does not preclude one from being able to vote in person, though attempting to convert to absentee as we get closer to the general election could become more difficult.
