    Hi Everyone,

    I wanted to know what Harvard requests of their applicants on their secondary application. I looked at the website, which briefly mentions letters of recommendation and the application fee, however there is no mention of how many essays are required, if any. Does anyone know?

    Many thanks.

    Thanks! I am somewhat relieved to find out that I won't have to write that many essays after writing the AMCAS statement! Are there any other websites (and some other underground Harvard link that I failed to notice) that gives you more information in regards to other school's secondaries?
    Thanks again!

    I think that the Medical School Admissions Requirements (MSAR) might say something about what is in their secondary. Or maybe it just says that everyone gets one.

    Anyway there have been a few discussions over the fall about easy and hard secondaries if you search based on that you will get an idea of whose are the toughest. Plus there have been discussions that actually have listed specific secondary questions. You could also search for those, just remember that some schools change their questions from year to year.

    Oh yeah Harvard asks how many siblings you have and their ages. Why?
