    Is anyone planning to apply after doing the Pharmacology SMP at Tulane (or any of the other ones they offer)?

    Note for those who are admitted and then decide not to attend, you will need to request your deposit back, it will not be credited automatically. It was suggested that I warn this year's applicants so that you aren't wondering where your $100 is next June.

    Best of Luck on your Applications!

    Anyone else take the CASPer today? Just took it and I feel like a ran a race lol. And the fact that they video you has to be just entertainment for them because I'm sure my facial expressions were priceless lmao.

    For all the "list" questions in the secondary, would it be acceptable to not only list the position/activity, but also provide a short description? Or would they only prefer simple, one word lists?

    does it look strange to an adcom if I discuss the tropical medicine aspect in the secondary for the "why tulane" secondary but didn't apply to the combined MD/MPH? I think its very cool I just don't think I would be competitive for the combined as I haven't done much PH stuff

    Edit: Nevermind I didn't know you can't apply to it unless you get into the SOM already

    Is anyone else having trouble saving a photo to their secondary app? I can upload it but when I hit save my picture doesn't come up.
    Thanks

    I was able to get it to save if I used a downsampled photo (eg 640x480 or whatever, like that). I originally was using a high-res image but I think there might be a pixel limit that's not specified

    I'm not planning on taking it, unless something or someone convinces me otherwise. Tulane is the only school on my list that takes it.

    Do they screen applicants? I was under the impression that all applicants receive a secondary. I haven't gotten one yet, but I'm OOS.

    Also, I am sending them the CASPer, but mainly because two other schools required it, so I figured I might as well add Tulane as well.

    Submitted the secondary but the letters of recommendation section is still marked as incomplete. I have a committee letter that was submitted to AMCAS and marked as received, and I have double checked that I assigned Tulane to this letter... anyone else having a similar issue?

    once you submit and they send you an email for completion confirmation, that should go away. I had the same issue.

    For this, is everyone literally listing or are you guys sort of explaining in paragraph form?

    I want to elaborate on some positions but don't want to fatigue them.
