That's really odd. Last year's thread looks like they were sent out immediately after verification.
I think it says somewhere on their website that they will send secondaries to ED candidates the week of July 19th. Which means anytime now I guess!
 
Yeah, here you go. I’m hoping this is true because I haven’t heard anything from them yet 😅


“Secondary Application Deadline | NOTE: Secondary Application emails will be sent beginning the week of July 19.”
I'm RD but I figure they'll send all the secondaries at the same time and review ED first. I'm glad they took their time to send these though cause I've had plenty of time to polish these essays to submit right when I get the secondary.

anyone not received a secondary? i emailed them on wednesday out of curiosity and they said by the end of the week but I didn't get one yet
 
Yes I am IS. Not everyone receives one though, I've known a few people who got pre secondary R's.
Wow really? I've heard Kentucky is very friendly to in-state applicants. My premed advisor has even got so far as to say the majority of UK students applying get an interview (which I highly doubt is true)
 
Anyone get verified 7/14 and not get a secondary yet? Im nervous I got screened out. IS, RD
 
I was verified on 7/19 and I still have not received a secondary. I’m applying regular decision. Is emailing them a bad idea? I went to UK for undergrad and a Master’s program
I was verified day 1 and haven't gotten it yet. I think they're just being slow. I emailed last week and they said probably by the end of that week but here we are, no secondary yet. Slightly annoyed lol.

Do you know if they notify applicants of pre-secondary rejections?
 
If anyone has received an II, could you please let us know if you are ED or RD. Thanks!

Has anyone else received an interview invite or have insight as to when they will be sent out?

I have friends who did ED who have their interviews coming up soon, and others who were rejected pre-secondary. My guess is that it will be after they're done with the ED interviews. I wouldn't worry though. Kentucky seems like they're lagging behind on everything this year.
