    If an admissions office calls you encouraging you to fill out their secondary does that really mean anything? Or is it synonymous to the diversity emails they send URM to apply?

      It means they want to project workflow and not have a rush of applications at end of cycle. It means squat to chances

        Secondaries are often a tax on the hopelessly naïve, if not pathologically optimistic.
