    1. What kind of information is asked on supplemental applications from schools that require them (i.e. additional essays?)

    2. Is there any part of the AADSAS that asks whether you've applied to other professional schools or taken any other entry exams (specifically, medical schools and the MCAT)?

    Thanks for the help

    1. Usually it is something like "why do you want to come to our school?" or "What has the community service that you have done meant to you"

    2. Yes and Yes

    Good luck

    They also make you repeat a lot of info from the AADSAS, like general background info, name, address, GPAs, extracurriculars, etc.

    Some schools have lengthy secondaries (like UCSF, Nova, UNLV, Arizona) that can be several pages and anywhere from 2 to 10 short paragraph questions. Some schools have a secondary that consists of little more than sending them a check (maybe filling out your name and address too). UOP and Temple both were like that.

    and just to be clear you only get supplemental applications from schools that invite you for an interview?
