Printing Personal Statement from ERAS to see how many page it makes

4631 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Talib
Dear friends,

I've been informed that the best way to know that how many pages our PS would make is by printing it off from the ERAS system.

However, when I go to my PS and click on print ps, I am taken to a page that not only show the PS but also the other stuff above so that when I use the browser's print I get these also which I don't think this is the way PDs going to see our PS.

Any solution to this problem please,

I have to finalize my PS before next Wednesday :toosad:

Steps of printing your PS from ERAS

Log in to your ERAS then go to Documents>Personal Statements>

Then click on "view/edit" the PS that you have uploaded. Then scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Save".

The resultant page is the way your PS will look like to programs (electronically) and it won't break into pages, as this is a browser page and it wouldn't show in pages.

But what you can do is copy the text of the PS (only the text of the PS, leave everything else in the page, such as the ERAS tabs, ...etc).

Now, go back to your PC desktop. Right click in an empty area and choose "create new text file" then past the PS text in this new .txt file.

In your text file, locate "file" in the upper left corner and click on it and then click on print from the drop down menu.

The printed page or pages are exactly what the program coordinators and directors will actually see if they choose to print your PS.
