I guess I will be the first to say that I am applying here this upcoming cycle. Where is everyone at? It's June. I know they have a later application deadline, but no other brave souls?

You should go to the website and find out which of the school's values you connect with. Anything we tell you is based upon what we connect with which is of no help to you.

Any essays on secondary?

Type a statement setting forth the key motivational factors in your decision to apply to Morehouse and any information about yourself you feel would be of interest to the committee on admission in the consideration of your application. 2000 characters.

I just managed to submit without paying the application fee. I just clicked "Application is Complete" and it told me that the app was submitted. Anyone else getting this? (And btw I did try to submit and pay on Monday but their payment system didn't work and my credit card never got charged).

I also did not get the option to pay the application fee.

I am applying as well, Morehouse is definitely my top choice! I am waiting on my MCAT scores from a mid-July administration, so I had to step away from SDN while I waited. For those of you that have received secondaries, when was your AMCAS app verified? Also, has anyone posted the secondary prompts yet?

Hi Gagurl, Morehouse is my top choice as well!! I submitted my AMCAS app for EDP on 7/17/12 and it was processed just a couple hours after that. Unsure of the response time for regular admission. The prompt for secondary is in one of the above posts....basically it asks WHY MOREHOUSE?

+1. I didn't see any picture form link either. I know the email they sent out says to mail them our application fee, but how much is it even? So confusing.

C'mon Morehouse step up your game.

Thanks Luyinniya! I did not apply EDP...so maybe that is the reason for the delay. I submitted my AMCAS on 7/3/12 and still has not been verified....eek!

I stuck with 2000 for everything in case the 32 was a typo.

I stayed under the 2000 limit just in case it was a typo.

I have yet to receive anything from Morehouse.
The thing about this process is that it's such a waiting game. When you don't hear anything, your mind works overtime and you start thinking, "Do they not want me? Why haven't I heard anything back?! I'm rejected, aren't I?" haha

I have to remind myself to calm down and take a breather. lol

I COMPLETELY understand. I dont think I've ever paid this much attention to my email before lol but like you I have to just cut my mind off and do something else to take my mind off of it. Good luck to you though!!!!

did anyone only receive an email titled 'invitation to submit supplemental application'? They included a link but it doesn't work. The email only talked about sending the application fee via money order or check.
I called the office, the guy basically just blew me off. So I'm super confused...

There were 2 emails with that subject. The first one had a link to the secondary website. The second one said the online payment system was not working so please mail in the payment. So you need to find the first email you received.

Yes that is the correct link. If it wont open for you still, you may have to open it on a different computer or with Firefox. For some reason it says page cannot be displayed on one computer but on my laptob the link works just fine. Hope that helps!
