    Your numbers are fine. Drexel takes a holistic approach so your things outside of the classroom become very important.

    Darn it; I'm not that much of a fan of the medical schools dishing out iPads trend, if only because I already bought one a while ago. :p

    +3, I think it's because initially the had technical trouble while sending out the first batch so now they're fixing that before they send the new batch out.

    Anyone applying MD/PhD? It says we need to create a PhD app, but there doesn't seem to be anything for 2014-2015 that I can add for a PhD?

    When I click "Save Incomplete Form" I get kicked out of the site and my information is deleted? It only started happening in the work section. Anybody else having this issue?

    Save incomplete form every time you enter something new because if you wait too long it will logout and delete whatever you entered.

    0.5 minutes is 30 seconds. I was saying I experienced the issue around 5 minutes.

    OHHH,

    I thought the .(point) was associated with the 5 as in 0.5min.

    Ha, I had the same problem. However, a few times I found no rhyme or reason to why the system kicked me back to the login screen. But the secondary is submitted now.

    Good luck everyone!

    +2, but they have to do it in batches because of all the backlog they've accrued by starting to send out a secondary in August so I can understand the wait. Still, it's my last school and I just want to submit my last application :)

    Did you get paid for the research or get academic credit for it? If so, I would leave it out. If you worked for free then you should probably include it in the additional EC section.

    I haven't received a secondary either, and I was verified 6/11. I really wouldn't panic or bother the admission office. I'm sure they are sending them in batches. Don't worry too much.
