Letters of recommendation should be uploaded by the individuals who write these letters.Although the online application mentions that applicants should submit writing samples, these instructions are intended for applicants to programs in the humanities and social sciences.The online application enables applicant to log into their record and check the status of receipt of recommendation letters and test scores.The GRE General Test is required of all applicants, although several Tracks allow applicants to use MCAT scores in place of the GRE.
