I'm lowkey nervous that I didn't have to submit a fee or anything, has anyone spoken with the admissions office about this and received an answer yet?

Admissions said that what has been sent out so far is not the secondary - they are just supplemental questions. They said that after further screening, the secondary will be sent out and the fee will be paid then.

on their website they wrote:
  • Due to a recent Supreme Court decision our supplemental application to the program, is currently under revision and review. Please revisit our website in August for an update to this section as your MSTP application will serve as the secondary application for both the Doctor of Medicine program and for the MSTP. No additional application is required to be considered for both programs. However, if you would like to also be considered for the MD only program, you must notify us of this intention.
so it seems they still plan to send out some type of secondary

I called earlier today and they said the same thing to me. They said to expect it within this week or the next week though so fingers crossed
 
The actual secondary right? Not a supplemental application
It is a weird supplemental application basically asking you to pay the 95$. After paying for it, then you will receive directions to basically tell you fill out your actual secondary in a PDF and send it to an email address.

The MD only secondary (which I received today) isn't like this. The MD only one has a portal for you to basically re-enter details easily found in your primary app in their secondary app and pay the 95$, no essays.

Did anyone get a confirmation email that the application is complete/under review? I got a the submitted email w a link to check the portal but it just shows the primary and secondary received
 
Have any non-MTSP applicants heard or received anything after submitting the supplemental questions? I submitted my supplemental questions on 7/28 and still haven't heard anything?

I submitted the supplemental questions and the secondary app with the $95 fee, but I didn't get any sort of under review/complete email. Just a link to a portal that doesn't really have much info
 
How long after submitting the supplemental questions are people receiving the secondary with the $95 fee? I submitted the supplemental questions but have not heard back about the actual secondary yet.

I got the secondary 8/17, I believe I submitted the supplemental questions a couple days after receiving them.

I'm OOS born in SC and lived there, I submitted my supplemental questions, but haven't received secondary. Is anyone else in the same boat?
 
Did anyone OOS MCAT <512 get a secondary? Worried I got pre-secondary ~softly~ rejected (I work at MUSC actually but haven't changed state residency)

In state RD II!

Submitted secondary on 8/6. Non traditional, with Lizzy M score of 63.
 
According to their website, MUSC does three interviews? Two are during the interview day, but the third isn't. Does anyone know what the third interview is like?

I sent mine in a few days later… still haven’t received secondary. Confused as well since I applied last cycle, interviewed, and got waitlisted

A few days before interview day they will give you contact information for a 3rd person and you will have to coordinate with them to interview on your own time

On the portal it says they review OOS applications in Nov&Dec for interviews in the spring. So OOS secondaries will prob go out later than IS ones from my understanding

Has anyone who has an interview this upcoming Friday (9/29) gotten an email with additional information about the interview day? I thought we were supposed to get an email 5 days prior to the interview (yesterday).
 
I have not received anything about interview day yet either, wondering if I should send an email about it
 
Just reread my II email and it said something about a zoom link at the bottom but there’s nothing there. Did anyone’s else email include a zoom link?
