Good luck to everyone applying this cycle!
Verified 6/11. Anxiously waiting for secondaries to drop, would love to go to this school.
Just a heads up-- Make sure you're all checking your spam folders during the cycle especially for KCU. A few people last cycle (including myself) received secondary/interview invites in their spam folder.
Mine definitely landed in the spam folder, Glad I found it!
Wait, did you already receive a secondary for this year?
Talking about last years. I returned it, got an interview invite for 6 days later, attended it and was accepted a week later
No secondary yet, hoping it comes soon! Will be checking last year's threads for the prompts to start writing the secondaries
they usually send it mid july I heard.
Anyone get a secondary yet?
Nope not yet
Did you guys answer the question in their prelim question about gpa/ Mcat scores? I might just put not applicable. What about campus selection?
When did KCUMBs class fill up last year?
Hey all! I'm applying here, and I heard they have strict cut-offs for stats. I was wondering if anyone knew the cut-off for each subsection of the MCAT? I'm worried that my 124 in the CARS section might get me screened out lol
I got an interview and accepted with a cGPA lower.(3.17/3.29/515)
Waiting for secondary's!
3.82 cum / 3.76 sci 507 MCAT
Good luck all!
Hey all! Applying here this cycle. I visited the campus and really enjoyed it. I am also very excited about the new medical education center they are building!! I believe the C/O 2023 will be the first to use it! Anyway, I think we can only pre write 2 of their secondary essays. It looks like they have one that changes every year. Good luck everyone!
Someone will probably ask this eventually-- Mean MCAT score for this year's entering class (Class of 2022) is 505.
Matches last years(C/O 2021)
Anyone get a secondary yet? This is one of my top DO schools
Still waiting. This was my top pick.
TUNCOM might be a more favorable location for me.
RVU I also have family in Colorado
DMU may also be less stressful curriculum than KCU.
Still radio silence
Since I figured everyone was wondering...last year the secondary was sent out on July 24th
Got an email today saying they received primaries and will be evaluating for secondaries soon
Sent from my iPad using SDN mobile
Should I be worried I am not receiving these emails.....
also second question... what were those questions about which campus is better on the primary application then? I thought those were the secondary questions.
No emails for me, im not too woried.
I wouldn't worry. They haven't even started sending out secondaries yet.
Those werent the secondaries
thank you guys
I received the "application received" email yesterday. I submitted 6/5 and verified 6/11. Hoping for a secondary next week sometime!
It took me weeks to get a secondary last year and it landed in my spam folder.
Not sure I'm going to get through the screening --> 3.19cGPA, 3.11sGPA. Got a pretty good post-bacc, not sure they will overlook the sci/cum GPAs. Will wait and see
Thanks for the input! Were you still able to get an interview and get accepted before December 14th? I only set aside $6K for the cycle and I'm already $2K in. My interview in a couple weeks will set me back another ~$800. Just trying to figure out this $2K deposit situation. Lol
I got through with a 3.0 cGPA - I had a 3.6 sGPA and 36 MCAT to make up for it. If you have a good post-bacc GPA and good MCAT to make them happy, you will be fine.
I really hope DO is a backup for you, and that you applied to plenty of MD schools.
I got a secondary in November, returned it, II less than a week later, interviewed Dec 7th, accepted Dec 15th. Only 1k is due, other half is march 1st.
Secondary received yesterday
I have 25 MDs that im at the 75% percentile for GPA and 25% for MCAT. Vermont requires a committee letter so that makes 24. I can afford at least 20 secondarys plus my 7 DO schools.
Awesome! Would you mind sharing secondary essays?
Ive also had pretty decent exposure to medicine and think im 80-90% sure on EM and 10-15% on gas. Should be fine for DO plus im willing to move for training.
yes please post secondaries~!
Can someone please post the prompts for the secondaries?
How do they determine who gets secondaries and when? I have not gotten anything and don’t think I’d below any cut offs.
Just be patient. KCUs stated cutoffs are 3.25 and 501. People get secondaries under that after they review
Well I’m above that. Guess I’ll just shoot them an email. Thanks!
Do they have a history of sending out secondaries to people under the cutoff?? I'm a Kansas City resident with a c3.82 s3.91 but a 498 mcat (retaking August). I'm really hoping that 6 years as a combat medic in the army helps me out here.
Just realized i made this post in the wrong thread. No secondary yet for me, but i have gotten an email stating KCU is looking through applications for screening before extending ssecondaries
Still no secondary
^^^ I am wondering the same thing. Does anyone know by chance?
