Does it reflect negatively on you if you don't return a secondary within 2 weeks of them sending it? Or do they not keep track of this?
gyngyn's post suggests that it does matter somewhat for his schoolIt was insanely easy to find, I recommend trying harder next time:
I think you're looking for reasons to worry. gyngyn said something that very mildly indicated that someone somewhere might be vaguely away of it, but also began that sentence with "relax".At my school you are not complete until all required documents have been submitted.
I doubt most places even notice the lag time between releasing secondaries and their return as long as they come in well before the deadline.
Dont confuse the deadline or time limit to submit it with the concept that the adcom uses the date of submission as a factor in admissions decision. If it has a due date, then it is simply due. If it doesnt have a due date, that is the questionU TN HSC absolutely DOES do this. They have a 1 week limit on the secondary from the time you get the link!
I haven't heard of any other schools that do, but TN applicants should be wary of their state medical school's policies on the matter.
