I didn't see anything about character limit on their secondary. One of my answers went up to 2700 characters so it has to be higher than that assuming there is a limit.

I have not got mine yet. I submitted a few days after you. Hopefully nothing too bad. Do they screen secondaries?

I also have not gotten mine, I submitted 5/27 got verified I think 5/29.
 
Just received an email that stated my app is complete and ready for committee review.
 
Has anyone that submitted their primary after June 24th gotten a secondary yet??
I was in a meeting with them early in the summer, and they informed me that due to campus reconstructions and a shortage of staff, secondaries will be sent out until mid-August. I think you're fine and shouldn't worry.
