    "Participated in a formal summer research and / or enrichment program related to a career in the health professions (i.e., SMDEP funded by R.W.Johnson Foundation or other competitive program)"

    Do Summer Programs for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) count?

    I don't think summer research would count here, I think they're trying to target people who took competitive career or leadership programs! Can't hurt to ask though.

    And I wouldn't be surprised if those questions were specifically for informational/research/survey reasons and not necessarily admissions directly. Especially because you have that stuff on your primary anyways and the questions are oddly very specific!

    I'd like to submit this today since it was just a few checked boxes, but I have four LOR's that will arrive by the end of the month I'll send through AMCAS. I know for some schools, you should wait to submit the secondary until LOR's are designated for that school, otherwise they'll only look at the first 3 letters you designate. Is it safe to submit and then designate LOR's later?

    I submitted mine today before designating letters because I like to live dangerously. They sent this in their confirmation email:
    "Your application will become complete when we have received ONE of the following:
    • Committee Letter
    • Pre-Health Packet
    • 3 Individual Letters - if you indicated via AMCAS that, for example, you have 5 individual letters arriving, the first 3 letters to arrive will make your application complete.
    • For MD/PhD candidates, 3 individual letters plus 1 additional letter in support of your MD/PhD application is required.
    Any additional letters received after your application is complete will be downloaded from AMCAS. However, we cannot guarantee that the Committee will have access to those letters when your application is reviewed. Unfortunately, our system does not allow us to hold applications for the arrival of additional letters."

    So it looks like you will be complete and reviewed when secondary and three letters are in. The could review the fourth letter, or they could not depending on when your app is reviewed. If you're really concerned about them reviewing the fourth it may be best to wait until it's ready before submitting.

    my bad, I really am not speaking from an informed place, but I'm thinking something very competitive like an NIH postbacc rather than like the undergrad summer research program at my college. But I could be wrong, I'm not sure what they're going for.

    I think there are a lot of people who did formal, NIH-funded research over the summer through an undergraduate program. I think it wouldn't be unreasonable to read it that way, but I also am not terribly informed!

    I was verified before 7/1 and got my secondary 7/11, so if they're on the same timeline it might be a bit!

    Verified 7/24 and received the secondary today, so maybe they're getting faster about it.

    As a heads up, you won't ever only see an II on a portal- they will always email you too!

    Thanks friend! Yeah there were no essays or anything so I imagine review is a relatively quick process.

    I submitted my secondary on 7/27, but since there was no secondary I wasn't able to update the school on any of the activities I have started this summer/fall semester. Is it weird to send an update letter this early in the cycle? My ECs could definitely use some work
