**The Biosketch form and CV are due FOUR WEEKS before your scheduled appointment with Dean Pearson. Both should be submitted electronically and by hard copy. Personal statement is due 2 days before.

** If you are missing part of the information by the scheduled due date, (for example, your personal statement, please turn in all of the information that you do have.

** ERAS Tokens are available from Student Affairs in mid-July. ERAS is not accessible without your token. Your token is not available to you until you have turned in your 2 wallet-sized photographs; passport photos will not work and digital photos will not work. (NOTE: These photographs are for your ERAS application and your yearbook, and should therefore be "interview" attire).
