    Anyone know if they send out their secondary invites WITHOUT the LoR requirement being completed? I am still waiting on my committee letter and am not expecting it till atleast the end of July. I am sure others are in a similar boat as me.

    Obviously if you're not 80+ LM with 3 first author pubs you need at least 2 gap years to have a shot at DO

    I'm gonna take whether or not I get a secondary invite from UCSF as a litmus test for the overall quality of my application.

    Yes I know secondaries are sent out over the course of several months but still.

    Yea I think they only send out 2500 secondaries out of all the applicants. Not secondary -> interview level but definitely appears to be a "priority, complete package" type of level. But what do I know lol.

    I guess my idea is slightly flawed considering I'm a OOS applicant so I'm sure I have other factors in play but overall I'd say a 2500 group at a top 10 school is a decent litmus test of overall app quality.

    FWIW I got a secondary last year with a LM 67 (below 10% for GPA/MCAT) and as a OOS student but fit their mission very very well. They are really strict with secondaries but look way past stats because I know some people with way higher stats who didnt get a secondary

    Also echoing this. I have a LizzyM of 70, but I have strong ECs (thousands of hours working with minority/vulnerable groups from all backgrounds, research, work experience and hobbies), and a strong PS. Mayo Clinic has also invited me for some of their programs.
