Loyola (Stritch)
Creighton University
Drexel (Medical School formerly known as MCP Hahnemann)

I received the secondaries in the mail for Finch and Loyola on Friday. Loyola has an online application that they give you the website to in the letter. I'm still waiting for Drexel's secondary.

Has anyone hear gotten a secondary from Harvard or Emory? I think Harvard has an automatic secondary, so even I should have made the cut for that one.

OHSU=Ohio State?

If so I got their secondary two weeks ago via e-mail. I also heard on another thread that they aren't giving interviews to anyone with less than a 30 MCAT until mid-December.

OHSU = Oregon Health Sci. Univ
OSU = Ohio State U. (from what I've read on SDN)

Today I received an email from Creighton saying in effect that they know I have applied, but their online secondary application is not ready yet...please just hold tight.

Also today I received via regular mail a letter from Loyola with secondary application instructions and pointers to the application on the web.

I have a strange feeling that I received a secondary letter from Loyola and I can't seem to find it now. is there anything I can do about it??? I don't even remember if I have received it.

I am usually very careful about keeping my secondaries together, but somehow this one seems to boggle me.... :confused:

You need to find it. There are two forms that you need to return to them with a printout of the completed secondary application.

I have now heard from Finch and Loyola also. Finch has a trivial secondary, but Loyola's has several essays.

Today I received the secondary application from Loma Linda. It has three short essays, but they do request a recommendation letter from your pastor. The essays focus on why you specifically want to attend Loma Linda. It also has a question asking if you will abstain from alcohol, tobacco, and drugs.

I also got Loma Linda and Loyola today. What if you're not christian? I didn't know that they would ask for a pastor's letter, and I have no inclination to get one. I wonder if I should even fill their secondary :confused:

Well, Tweetie...I think the actual wording is that a letter from your Pastor is "highly recommended, but not required". I am sure they have the appropriate non-discriminatory policies in place and that you would be evaluted equally.

However, all schools have their own personalities. And you should be extremely aware that Loma Linda's stated goals is to educated Chsitian doctors. Chapel service is required weekly.

If that isn't how you wish to spend the nest four years, I am sure your applications to the other 58 schools ;) you are applying to will be more than enough.
