    Hi Guys,

    I previously applied to some schools but did not complete the secondary applications.
    When I am selecting a school, they ask if "I have applied to their school before"
    If I had not completed my secondary previously, then does that count as an 'application'?

    When I reapplied I answered yes. If I was given option to elaborate I had great answer prepared for what I did since applying first time around.

    Technically it would be no, but they can still see that you applied and didnt even bother to finish the application. I would follow LongTimeLurk and say yes and be prepared to defend

    I wrote no for schools where I didn't complete the secondary because you didn't actually finish the application. If your app wasn't in the pool being considered, then you didn't apply. It's the difference between working on an application and submitting it.
