Question Adding preliminary position after sending application?


I have sent my applications to chosen schools via ERAS, however, I only selected "categorical" positions but now would like to add preliminary as well. I have checked the preliminary box under "Programs applied to" and clicked save, however, my question is do programs get this updated information? Do I need to contact them informing I am now applying for both positions?

Thanks and good luck to everyone.

They might perceive you as confused/ desperate. Applying to two tracks in the same program....hmmm. I haven't heard of anyone it worked for. I won't advice you contact the PDs, they are feisty as of now. Too many people barraging them with calls and whatnot, this might be the straw.
