Does anyone know if these schools screen? Do you get a secondary as soon as your submit your AACOMAS (from your profile information) or do you only get it after AACOMAS is verified. So if I submitted AACOMAS this weekend, when would I expect to get CA secondaries?

thanks everyone!!

Touro says that they screen more strictly than do other schools (this is their justification for the higher secondary fee). My primary application took three weeks to get verified after submission. I would anticipate getting secondaries around a month after you submit your primary (assuming your transcripts are recieved before you submit the primary).

in my case, I was offered an interview without the secondary been completed. I still have to complete the secondary by the day of my interview. If your stats are good, they will offer your something

here's the scoop i got from western..they do screen, as in 2.5 gpa min (i assume sci gpa) and no less than a 5 in each section of your MCAT...

take this with a huge grain of salt though in terms of indications for admission, since we all know each secondary is worth $$$.

i don't know about others, but i personally get peeved about schools with lax secondary screening standards. not accusing them of tossing your app to the side once it makes it through the admissions office door, but not exactly a great beacon of light either.

again, at least with COMP, seems like those who get interviewed pre-secondary fare best in terms of guessing their chances (obviously people with chunky stats).
