    Nope -- they're one of the last I'm waiting for. For what it's worth, none of my other friends have received anything from them either.

    My friends all say the same thing. Do you know if they use an extensive screening process like Duke or Northwestern?

    Hi:
    Thought I would add my two cents as well. I put my AMCAS application in on June 30and received all of my secondaries, except for Creighton, by July 31. I still have received nothing from Creighton.
    What could it be? Did a whole batch of AMCAS applications get lost in the mail? Not likely because AMCAS would reprint/remail them. I feel that Creighton's staff is still bogged down trying to fill out the 2000 fall class. But, if a secondary or a rejection letter doesn't arrive by Monday, I will be calling to inquire.
    Take care and good luck.

    Is there just one page to this secondary? This is the shortest one I have seen! There isn't even a place to sign and date it, except for on the picture. Am I missing something?

    I applied to Creighton last year, and the same lapse for the secondary happened. Here is the deal:

    Creighton has a Guaranteed Admissions program which is for 60 of Creighton's 100 slots. They handle all of the paperwork, admissions info, etc. for that particular program first. This means that anyone applying for the regular admissions is put on hold until all Guaranteed Admissions slots are filled. Then the regular applicants are sent secondaries and reviewed, which comes later in the application season.

    I hope this clears things up for people.

    I'm a first year at Texas Tech. I know how hard, frustrating, and tiring the application process is, so good luck to everyone.
