    From Cornell or Case Western? Those are the only two schools I'm applying to that have been completely silent during this process thus far...

    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
    > need them as much as they need us. They should be patient because we
    > are all thinking very carefully how to proceed in these special and
    > painful circumstances and it may take some schools longer than others
    > to make that decision.
    >
    > In all probability, we, at Cornell, will start contacting applicants
    > by the middle of next week.
    "

    It was sent on July 27.
