    Has anyone gotten a secondary from here? I feel like most DO schools have already sent out theirs, but this one seems to be taking longer :(

    Do they specifically screen for supplemental apps?

    I think there is some sort of screening process because it says "Applicants who meet our requirements are sent an electronic link to the secondary application" on their site.

    I feel like that's for most schools they send secondary to those that meet their requirements, but some schools like CUSOM, check requirements but they don't provide secondaries to all, but they are very selective.

    Last year, the first secondary (on SDN) came on July 8th, so hopefully they start rolling in later this week!

    I believe that @Positivevibes5 was referring to not having a secondary yet.

    No need for sorry! I should've quoted the original person in my response to make it clear.

    Not yet it is surprising how delayed they are, MD schools are even starting to interview.

    I would assume it would be faster. I just think they are busy and haven't sent out secondaries at all yet, but once they do, I don't see them taking this long later on in the cycle.

    for the research question, what do we upload? Can we upload a powerpoint slide that has my name and project information on it? I never got published for it, so should I ignore it?
