    Requesting Deans Letter

    Advertisements



    For those of you who have applied for residency this year or in the past, what is Windsors rule for the amount of weeks needed prior to them giving you the Deans letter? According to Margoles, its 62-64 weeks minimum + all cores done before applying. I know it sounds like I answered my own question but I'm going to be at roughly 58~ weeks before applying. Is Windsor really going to make me sit at home for a year because I'm off by a couple weeks? Is there any way around this?

    Thanks

    If I was you, I would still apply for residency. Application season starts around Sept 15th, and the Dean's letter is released from medical schools to residency programs and uploaded to ERAS around October 1st. Even if your Dean's letter is a bit late, I would still apply.

    I'm pretty sure you need around 60+ weeks of rotations done to get the Dean's letter. Hope this helps.

    I think you'd be better off calling Dr. Mar***** in person and getting the answer from him. Unlike most of Windsor admin, Dr. M will give you a straight, honest answer.

    I think you should call, not email, him and explain your situation and see what he says.
