To avoid submitting an application that may become ineligible as soon as the MCAT score is received, applicants are encouraged to write the MCAT early so that they may confirm their scores meet our minimum requirements before applying. Applicants are also encouraged to write the MCAT early in order to have time to reschedule their exam should confirmed testing difficulties arise during the exam. Unfortunately, the Admissions Office cannot accommodate rescheduled exams with score release dates that fall significantly after our September 29 deadline. Applicants who experience technical difficulties during their MCAT should receive official confirmation from AAMC and email the documentation to the Admissions Office.
A: Formal materials consist of the two-part secondary application (UF Professional School Application + UF COM Secondary) and three letters of recommendation. You only have control of your secondary application materials. Therefore, if you know you have submitted these to the correct offices and paid applicable fees, it is more likely that your LORs have not been received. Make sure you did not skip Step 2 of our initial email to you inviting you to fill out a secondary application. THESE EMAILS ARE NOT SENT IN ERROR – IGNORING THEM WILL EVENTUALLY RESULT IN A REJECTION EMAIL.
In The New York Times review of Ashes and Embers published on November 17, 1982, Janet Maslin wrote: ”Ashes and Embers ..explores the experience of a black Vietnam veteran trying to come to terms with American life. It’s a rambling, almost dreamlike film that drifts between Washington, where Ned Charles, its protagonist, (played by John Anderson) wanders past ghetto streets and war memorials; Los Angeles, where he hopes to find his future, and instead winds up in police custody; and the rural setting of his grandmother’s farmhouse. His grandmother is one of the main forces in the film, talking with Ned about his troubles, his culture and his history. Another key influence is his politically active girlfriend, often seen engaged in group discussions that are among the film’s most interesting sequences.”
