Will I be looked down upon for applying and then not submitting a school's secondary? I didn't submit secondaries to schools that were out of driving distance because I was very tight on money.

For a lot of schools, it will just make it seem like you're a reapplicant even though you didn't actually finish the secondary. Remember that every school you list in AMCAS will have seen your AMCAS application

Why did you apply in the first place?
My school uses a committee letter, and if I didn't submit on the first day I would have been significantly behind in the committee letter queue and my application would have been very late (it was sent out late anyway though, so...). I found out about this a few days beforehand, rushed to finish my entire app, and through a bunch of schools on because I didn't know I could add more later.

Needless to say, I was very disorganized.

Right I understand that every school will have seen my amcas application. My question, and maybe its school specific, is whether they will recognize that I applied but didn't complete a secondary, and then think that I did not have interest in their school.
