    ERAS CAF section

    Advertisements



    I never realized I was such a blah medical student until my ERAS application finds itself to be completely blank on the "Medical School Awards and Honors" section. I have been a pretty good student. Nice lists of ECs, volunteer work and research. Grades and scores are pretty decent, but that "none" that appears on my CAF under the Medical School Awards and Honors section is really bugging me.

    Has anyone else found themselves in the same situation? Anyone have any ideas about how I can get someone to honor me within oh...about a month since it's almost time to submit my app? I know...it's just a pipe dream...but how many people out there will be submitting their app with nothing in that section?

    Just humor me...help me feel better for now (at least until I press the submit button and there's nothing else I can do about it )

    Okay...perhaps I am obsessing over this but I feel I've definitly emphasized my good attributes on my CV....but it was still bugging me that I can't really even think of a student award or honor (other than AOA) that my medical school even gives out...nothing before senior honors night that is...which is a bit too late for this application.

    I was just venting and hoping I wasn't alone with a big fat "none" appearing on the CAF under that topic.

    I know...I'll type "Not Applicable" and at least the default "none" should dissappear....and yes....it's sad that I've been reduced to this...see what medical school has done to me? Thank goodness for only 9 months and 4 days until graduation...but who is counting?

    I dont think its a big deal really... Most PD's probably look at awards from foreign med schools as ** anyway...
