Don’t write anything then. I didn’t. “Optional” truly means “optional”

How are people addressing prompt 1? I was thinking about either talking about experiences with underserved populations or my diversity essay, which falls in line better with the "individual life experiences" part. It kind of seems like the prompt is looking for both though. Thoughts?
 
Anyone else who get an II not see the "Interview" tab on the portal? BTW II received this afternoon LM 73 complete 6/29

My only tabs are Welcome, Application, Post Submission, Interview Questionnaire, and Status. Do you see another one for Interview?
I filled out the Questionnaire first and then maybe it popped up after I wasn’t paying attention - so many fill it out first if u haven’t yet?
 
Question for people getting the II, did your status change from application is ready to application is under review before getting the invite?

I just added Georgetown to my list on AMCAS. How long does it typically take to receive the secondary?
 
My AMCAS got verified three days ago, 7/10. I still haven't received a secondary from Georgetown, should I be worried? I thought they sent secondaries to all applicants?

I'm in the same boat. Got verified on 7/10 and haven't gotten anything yet.

I was verified 7/2 and Georgetown took until 7/8 to send me a secondary. I wouldn’t worry until Friday.

For the first prompt, how is everyone addressing all 3 values of Cura Personalis, People for Others, and Community in Diversity in only 1000 characters?

I told a story in which actions I took embodied each of the 3 values. I didn't state it directly though, but I think it's easily inferred (hopefully).

Do you guys think that the story has to be clinically based? Can it be something outside of that?

There are many many ways to approach the prompt. A story is not required, and mentioning clinical experience is not required.

As long as you explain or show how you embody or one, two, or three of the values, you are effectively answering the prompt.

"Are you/will you be enrolled in any Georgetown University program during the 2023-2024 academic year?"
um... do they mean 2024-2025?

Also wondering this!! Assuming it is a typo because I think the application last year also said 2023-2024.
 
What did you guys write for Is there any further information that you would like the Committee on Admissions to be aware of when reviewing your file that you were not able to notate in another section of this or the AMCAS Application?

The website doesn't list it as optional either
