    When I submitted my secondary, they sent me an email saying they received the secondary app. Now, is this the same email as "the your app is complete" email or do I receive another email saying my app is now complete?

    Any advice on how to get from O'hare to the RFU area other than a cab or the Metra? The Metra just seems really out of the way.

    O'hare is rather far from North Chicago. North Chicago is close to the Wisconsin border and so you would be better off (cost-wise) to take the Metra. A cab from O'hare to North Chicago would run you like 150-200 dollars.

    Try flying into Milwaukee. You can sometimes get cheaper flights. I'm sure you can get a taxi or even get a limo to pick you up and take you down there and then back.

    You can fly into Milwaukee or Chicago and take the Metra. I live in Chicago, and plan on taking the 30-minute train to North Chicago, the night / afternoon before.

    Also, keep in mind that their clinical sites are in Chicago, so the commuting distance is reasonable.

    The school is kinda out of the way, I think the metra then a cab is going to be your best bet if you do not want to rent a car.

    Good old SDN providing all our neurotic needs :p There's some toughies, but from the variation in questions asked I would say that either there are a few crazy interviewers or some ppl are being a bit dramatic on their surveys. Have fun!

    I wonder why some screeners take longer than others to review a file; and by longer, I mean wayyy longer lol. It's weird how ppl who completed/pooled in August receive interview invitations before ppl who completed/pooled in June and July. Not just this school, but other schools as well

    I would say yes..of course this is speculation, but if they were waiting on a score they would probably hold off reviewing until it came in...

    So just a quick question: when you guys completed secondary for Rosalind Franklin, you had to pay in order to get the secondary right? In other words, there is no more paying once you submit the actual secondary.

    It's just weird for me to have paid first to get the secondary - other schools ask for payments when I submit the secondary. I just don't want to be charged twice for $105.
