    Does Harvard screen? When can we expect Harvard to start sending out secondaries.

    The reason I'm asking is b/c I'm going away for 2 weeks, and am worried that it's going to be snail mailed while I'm gone. Do they usually snail or e mail?

    Pre-Med,

    Regardless, Harvard's secondary is online so you can access it from wherever you are. In fact, it's up but I'm not sure if you can use it yet.

    Anyways, I think Jot said that he received a secondary under one of his posts. So you can check with him.

    hey - i didn't get any e-mail from harvardmed someone just gave me the link. if you start up an application you will get an e-mail from them saying that you have started to submit your application. don't freak out - like i did for a second because i just filled in a little bit of info and looked at the app - you have to verify it etc... for final submission. its not rolling so there is no rush (relatively).

    I got the secondary through snail mail today too, you can gete excited for awhile because it comes in a big envelope.

    I'd already filled it out online though.

    Yah, they must have just sent out a big batch, I just got mine snailmail today--there's a letter that directs you to the site. The actual secondary is a breeze, no essay, just a few questions.
