Certificate Evaulation Forms and no Letters of Recommendation from Brown University

Some universities like Brown, have clearly mentioned that their elective coordinators are only supposed to fill out their own evaluation form about the student no other letters (as in letters of recommendation) would be given to students. I wanted to know if anyone has taken an elective at Brown and are aware of this policy. the harvard university website says almost the same thing.

Arrow It's even better

This would be even better than a simple Letter of Recommendation.

The "objective" Evaluation Forms are appreciated more than the "subjective" letter of recommendation.

You can choose to waive your rights to see the evaluation forms and ask them to send it directly to the ECFMG. But am not sure if this is possible with Brown University. You have to ask them. I think they don't do it. They just give the form to you so that you can see how you did.

I don't think you can send them in replacement of the LoR. But you can certainly mention them in ERAS and show them in interviews.

MSPE is different, MSPE is provided by your med school and evaluates you throughout the years of education in med school from day 1 to the last day.

MSPE has nothing to do with USCE. It's about Medical School, not about electives or any other form of USCE.

Hi! I have an evaluation from a couple of electives, but no LORs. I was wondering if I could upload them somewhere?
