    Hey everyone,

    I was verified on Sept 26th and I was just wondering how long until I should expect secondaries? I am asking because I have seen numerous complaints about AACOMAS messing things up and not releasing applications to schools.

    I have already been working on the essays for most of the schools so my turnaround time should be pretty good but I was curious if you could shed some light on how long I should expect to wait before I see them start to roll in.

    FYI: cGPA3.48/sGPA3.52/MCAT29(9/10/10) and I applied to:
    UNECOM
    RVUCOM
    TouroCA
    WesternU
    Mich State

    I got my first secondary the day I was verified. And the next three days I received 99% of my secondaries. However, I was verified in July, so the timetable may be a little different applying this late in the cycle.

    You should have a fair shot at the schools you listed, but the list is a little short.

    Thanks for the info. I know the list is short but I applied to 9 MD schools as well (complete at each one) and am planning on adding 2-3 more DO schools

    Western, RVU, Touro ca all gave me their secondaries 2-3weeks after being verified. They were the late ones among the schools I had applied.

    I was verified last week as well so my app was released to schools today and I got MSUCOM's this morning (they send their secondary to everyone that submits a primary). So if you don't get MSU's by the end of the week, I would maybe send AACOMAS a message or call MSU and verify if they received your primary.

    AACOMAS releases applications to the schools every Tuesday. You were verified on Friday, so that means they'll be releasing your application today. That's why you haven't received any secondaries yet.

    That said, I surprisingly got a secondary from Rowan before my application was released. No idea how.

    Been a week, and still no word from Western or Touro NV. Heard from all the others I applied to, though.
