Is it worth it to apply if you are OOS?

Website says: “Rowan-Virtua SOM does have some preference to NJ residents, but out-of-state applicants are strongly encouraged to apply. We accept competitive applicants from all over the country.”

In last year's thread, ppl didn't start getting secondaries until July 7th, so maybe they will start sending them out tmr or next week.
For what it's worth, I visited two weeks ago and they said they were thinking of sending secondaries mid-July
Someone on reddit said that the website says it will be sent out july 10? I don't see it anywhere on the website though.

Does anyone know if they screen for secondaries?
Just got an email verifying they received my primary and will send out secondaries in 1-2 weeks

Received an email saying secondaries coming within 1-2 weeks
LOL that email was a cry for help asking us not to bombard with phone calls about the secondaries! That is super late compared to last cycle though... I saw the first secondary noted was July 7th
Trying to prewrite their secondary, don't think they have a word limit/character count. What are you guys aiming for?
Secondary received just now (3:30pm). Definitely seems like it’s going out in waves. OOS, strong ties.

Does anyone know if secondaries are sent out to all verified applicants? Or are applicants screened?
