    So am I, you should have received one...make sure everything is up to date on your AMCAS because they said they send secondaries to "all eligible applicants"

    I think they might not all be going out instantaneously -- someone got theirs a while ago, while mine was just recent. I was verified 7/5.

    Everyone REMAIN CALM. Let's go with Occom's Razor here. The emails might be sent out alphabetically, or totally random. Michigan doesn't pre-screen their applicants. Everyone gets a secondary.

    Here is the essay portion:

    Tell us something you are passionate about and why. Do not exceed 1500 characters (about 250 words).

    At the University of Michigan Medical School, we are committed to building a superb educational community with students of diverse talents, experiences, opinions, and backgrounds. What would you as an individual bring to our medical school community? Do not exceed 1500 characters (about 250 words).

    Best of luck, everyone. I got the secondary last night but didn't actually check it until this morning when I got the second email.

    Are you all putting anything for the "Is there any other information you would like to provide to us at this time? (optional)" Would it be appropriate to write a small "why Michigan?" essay or an adversity essay or something, or is it more for explaining something on your application if needed?
