    hey y'all, i was just wondering if anyone else is wasting time not getting supplementals done. i think i have three to do right now, but i haven't even started on 2 of them. i guess i've been busy with class, but i just don't feel like doing them when i'm not in lab or studying...

    Yea, where are all these supplemental apps. from? I applied to 13 schools in the northeast and the only supplemental was from University of Pennsylvania, and it didn't take long.

    Do them while you're eating, sitting on the toilet, or while you're watching tv. Just get them done and submitted! Don't procrastinate. :luck:

    The UNC supplemental is available online now, but it has a few essay questions so don't put it off too long.

    i have yet for my application to be mailed out yet. so no secondaries, but i am not looking forward to those additional essays. why do they have us fill out a standard application then ask for more, why not just include it on the original application. i think it is to see who is really interested, and another reason to ask for more money.

    Eh, the essays are annoying, but at least all the schools pretty much ask the same questions.

    Suck it up and fill out those secondaries everyone. Everyday you delay, the lower your chances are of getting accepted. When you look back, the small sacrifice of free time will be insignificant. Time to stay focused and be serious about applying. You've done so much as far as the application process goes, not a good time to slack off now.

    I just got UMKC's "applicant survey" CD in the mail. 14 essay questions with sub-categories. Sweet, I hate going out on weekends. And I still have to get UCSF's done, so I won't have to hang out with friends for weeks! What a relief :p
