    Hey my premed advisor got this from Cornell:

    "As some of you might know, in the past medical schools had the
    > option of receiving labels from AMCAS to mail their secondary
    > applications. Those mailing labels had the addresses of applicants
    > who had just submitted an AMCAS application listing that particular
    > medical school, and the AMCAS application had not been either
    > completed or verified. Other schools (like Cornell) opted to wait
    > until an AMCAS application was verified and submitted electronically
    > before sending their secondary. And, there were schools which only
    > sent secondaries to applicants after a first screening.
    >
    > This year, AMCAS has given us the same options in a different format.
    > And, as is to be expected, each medical school has decided what
    > process works best for them. As of last week, medical schools had
    > the option of sending their secondaries (or, since most of them are
    > now on their web sites, sending instructions on how to access their
    > secondaries) to those applicants who had submitted an AMCAS
    > application which had not yet been verified (the equivalent of
    > receiving maiing labels). Some did that right away, others opted to
    > wait a little while longer, to decide what to do.

    > Please, do not let your students panic. I am sure that all medical
    > schools are, as is Cornell, eager to start our admission process.
    > Tell your students that we will be extremely flexible this year with
    > deadlines and be sympathetic to applicants' tales of woe, because we

    >
    > In all probability, we, at Cornell, will start contacting applicants
    > by the middle of next week.
    "

    It was sent on July 27.
