Has anybody received a secondary application or a confirmation that they received the application from amcas? I submitted my primary at the beginning of august and haven't heard anything from the school

I haven’t received anything either… might be because my undergraduate schools has not yet sent the LOR on a package. Once they do and if I receive anything I’ll let you know.
 
Where is the option? How do you even select the campus? Is this an option in the secondary?
did you get a secondary?
i didn't get anything so i emailed the admissions email and got an email that said thank you for your interest. it listed steps of getting admissions and said click here to submit secondary. when i click on it, it takes me to their portal site. It says visiting or international student. IDK what I would be since I wanna apply to st louis??! also the secondary is just demographic and bio info. no essays??

Does anyone have any information on the interview? II received 10/17 and would like to know more about it.
 
Is Ponce still sending out II? And are they online or in person? Also, did anyone from here also apply to San Juan Bautista?
 
i received an ii in october and was accepted a couple weeks ago - however, i have not submitted my secondary so if you have questions/want updates i would say to call admissions

Wow that's pretty odd. I actually submitted my secondary application and the fee October but I haven't heard anything since.
 
Does anyone know if the interviews are in Spanish or English?
 
II today! Received and submitted the invitation for the secondary in October, it was just a demographics sheet pretty much, no essays. I wasn't informed at any point that a secondary with essays would follow, are we even sure there are any essays at any point?

Thank you so much!!! Also, do you know if the interviews are 1-on-1 or with other students? I can't tell from the email!
there was one interviewer, two medical students, and another student applying

Ok.. be real with me then. My family is from PR and I was invited for an interview, but I am worried. Because I speak Spanish conversationally around the house and I am not sure how I would fair in an interview where I am ONLY speaking Spanish... do I need to be worried? Should I even accept the interview invite?
