Anyone receive a secondary app yet?
 
Just a friendly heads up from last year's cycle (current M1 at Quillen). One person on SDN reportedly got their secondary around this time in July. Not sure if they were Early Decision or not, but everyone else got them the first week in August so stay patient. Tag me with any questions you guys have good for the public and message me with anything else! Good luck to you all.

Loving it. Chose it over other MD acceptances and feel more and more confident in that decision every day. White coat ceremony tomorrow to formally conclude orientation then diving into embryo Monday! Can’t recommend Quillen enough.

Hoping and praying I get into this University. It's in my home state and vet friendly, which helps!

Mine lets me login but the questions aren't showing up in Safari or Chrome. Anyone else have this problem?

I have the same issue. Were you able to figure out what’s going on?

No but I'm assuming today is the first day they sent out secondary invites (could be wrong tho) and there's on a bug on their end they need to fix. It almost looks like they didn't upload the questions maybe? Probably need to call the office if multiple people are having the same problem

That was my guess, too. Thanks for posting something on this thread! Glad I’m not the only one with this issue

If anyone ends up figuring out the way to actually see the questions or if someone emails/calls the office, post an update on here please!
 
IS, same here. I paid the application fee through and am worried I won't be able to fill out the questions
 
Anybody else not get a secondary, but got a survey instead?
 
Have you taken the Casper yet? I just did on the 30th, so it’s not scored. I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

Took my Casper early June.

Anyone else having trouble deciding which 3 questions to answer?

I assume it’s an at least 3 of 5 right? I haven’t got the secondary yet, but want to pre write.
 
I didn't see the three out of five part and answered them all.... Submitted.
 
I only wrote 3 out of 5 and I submitted this morning.

Any OOS receive secondary yet? I have competitive stats and I'm a veteran, so I was hoping to at least get a secondary from East Tennessee. I'm OOS though, so maybe that's why?

I'm OOS and haven't recieved a secondary either. I'm hoping they just send OOS a little later because if I remember correctly, on the MSAR it says they accept OOS applicants.
