Their website says the earliest filing date for secondaries is July 2nd. Have they sent any out?

Does anyone know what the abreviation for the school's name is? Is it UC?
 
Just got a secondary!
Anyone know if they send out invites without CASPer?
To reach 'complete status' and prior to an interview invite, you must complete CASPer.

I submitted secondary but it says my CASPer results are not delivered yet. On my CASPer account it says results have been delivered to UC Denver, and all the other schools on my account have marked that they have received my CASPer. Am I missing something?

Give them a few business days and see if the status changes to 'delivered'. Sometimes the schools still need to download the results from the CASPer company. Wait 1 week before calling admissions office.

Any one know the significant of the Colorado Springs? I'm looking at the website, but cant find anything explicitly stated besides the location and # of students who get to go
 
Anyone IS receive secondary yet? I called admissions and they said they are sending them out in waves but just want to make sure I'm not the only one.

Nope. None of my friends or I have received it yet.
 
To IS applicants this cycle: I hope I can ease some of your nerves. Sometimes they send secondaries and II to OOS students first because they have to travel further and may request a different interview date (they only interview 2 Fridays a month) so don't panic if you are still waiting. I waited almost 3 weeks after primary verification last cycle to receive secondary. Wishing you the best. Good luck!

Is it me or is the secondary just a diversity/hardship statement? I looked up their mission statement and it seems pretty generic
 
Are you supposed to only use 1500 characters total for both secondaries?

I submitted my AMCAS on 5/31, was verified on 6/10, and still haven't received a secondary. Anyone else in the same boat? OOS.

No way 1500 characters including spaces is 300 words. Did they mean without spaces?

I am OOS from a rural background, so I am interested in the rural track, but when selecting there is a drop-down essay with the prompt: "Describe your experience in and commitment to rural Colorado and your vision of working as a primary care physician in rural Colorado."

How is someone that has never been to Colorado but is interested in rural medicine supposed to answer this? Is the rural track only meant for IS applicants? Any advice would be appreciated

Samsies. They seem to be sending out random waves, I don't think we need to stress yet.

I would describe your experience and commitment to rural communities. It doesn't necessarily have to be a deal-breaker if you have no experience with Colorado, but make sure you answer the rural portion of the question well.
