Just wondering if anyone has or if applicants from the Class of 2009 could give me an idea of when it was sent out.
Thanks!

As far as I know, they haven't sent them out yet. It will probably be sometime in the next few weeks after they've finalized this year's entering class.

are there essays?!?!?! :scared:

verified 7/13, have not received yet
Got mine today, they have a few short essays. One is to describe yourself, 1000 character limit and another is to tell them what experience you would most likely talk about at interview, i think thats 250 characters. There are some other places for responses but those are mostly for "did your parent go here", "have you previously applied", etc. etc. Typical stuff on some of the other secondaries I've seen.

Received via e-mail on Tuesday. Just a couple short answer and list some work activities/EC's which are most important to you. $100 fees! My checking account is almost bled dry... :eek:
Oh, and I was verified around 16 June.

Sorry, because you said that I now feel compelled. :)

They call it "snail mail" cuz its slow. Whenever ppl say "the mail", others kept asking "email or regular mail?" So to prevent ppl from asking they started the phrase "snail mail" cuz it rhymes. tee hee

For Albany's secondary questions on EC's/activities, does anyone know if you can list new activities in those spaces that were not on AMCAS? I just don't feel like calling them up...

Albany doesn't screen, but they just started sending out their secondary so I'm sure you'll receive it shortly.
