I see on their website that "the CASPer test is not required but highly recommended." Is taking the CASPer test necessary for my application to be competitive for this school?

any time a school highly recommends something, you should do it… for med school apps, i interpreted highly recommended as required
 
I just got an email saying my app is received, I didn't submit or get any secondarys. Do you only send secondarys if they look over your app? I submitted my primary in like may

maybe there is no secondary?
 
Anyone know when they begin to send secondaries? I heard if you get a secondary here its a guarenteed interview.
 
they’ll send a secondary if they want to interview you! i’m not sure when they start sending secondaries but it will probably be sometime soon! i got my secondary at the end of september and interviewed about 1.5 weeks later i think

Do you feel that most people who interview get in or is it about 50/50?
 
Were interviews provided virtually or in person and what was the flexibility surrounding this? Sydwig or anyone from the previous year. Big Thanks for the help!

It said in the email they prefer in person and most will be in person except for a limited few in the spring

i would 100% do in person if possible, you get to see the campus, meet staff and students, and it’s just a good way to get the vibe of the school
 
i would take casper just bc it’s “strongly recommended” which essentially means it’s required in med school speak lol

WOW! 10% interview rate is not something I knew. Do you know where I can find more statistics?

Do you know often a person that interviews gets accepted?
