    I've got 3 more sitting on my desk (UCLA and Pritzker and Pittsburgh). I have realized I can't afford Pritzker...so they are just gonna have to wait and maybe if I have time I will do them later...25 are done!! :)

    I finished 16, and I've had the last three sitting half-completed on my desk for the past few weeks. :(

    I finished all 14 of my secondaries last week when Temple arrived (along with my interview invite!) I also finished my NYU application a couple weeks ago. Good luck to every one still waiting for secondaries and interviews.

    Done with all mine except 2. Albany and Creighton, both of which I haven't received yet. What is going on with Creighton? Talk about leaving your applicants in the dark. Is their system that screwed up that they can't even mail out secondaries yet?

    Done with all of mine except for UCI -- their admissions office says the first batch of secondaries will *hopefully* be out next week. Whatever that means.

    I applied to 25, cuz I wanted to have options. I received from a little more than half, and finished about 10 (including UCLA, UCSD). The ones left are half-completed and are due in Nov or Dec, so I've been trying to get to them. I'm also working full-time right now so it has been hard to get to all of them as I'd liked.

    I've only completed 4 of the 12. Ironically, I have received 2 interview invitations thus far and neither were from schools where I had returned the secondary. Where do you guys find the time?

    13 done (that's counting Boston and Mayo, who only wanted $$) out of 20 received, with 3 more almost done.

    And yeah, what is up with Albany and Wake Forest? I received a letter from Albany dated 8/15 saying that they would e-mail me in late Aug or early Sept "when we have received your AMCAS application and when our web-based supplemental application is available." One month later, nothing! And according to the "Wake Forest Update" thread, they are waiting for verified apps (wonder how long they intend to wait) from AMCAS and are screening for their on-line secondary!
    I'm wondering if I should send both of them paper copies, although they haven't asked for them.

    i've received 22 of 23 and i've returned 20 of those 22 (i ultimately decided not to apply to 2 schools because i didn't meet their requirements). so i'm totally finished *except* for one school: the lone mystery secondary is albany--what are they waiting for, anyway?

    Out of 16 schools to which I'm applying, I returned 13 secondaries, I'm yet to return Columbia, and I've not heard squat from Stanford.

    Did Wake require an essay? Essays are killing me, and I don't want to do another. I hope one is not required.

    So I guess I won't hear from them until after the Aug. MCAT scores are out. Thanks for reminding me of what I should have already known! :)

    I'm so inspired by this thread, that I've just finished 2 more!
    15 down, 5 to go!! :D still waiting on 2 :(

    Wake Forest. What is the deal with waiting for verification? What about the fact that verification seems to be occurring in no particular order?
    I have 3 more to finish. And still waiting to here from Wake Forest.

    Nope, no essays for Wake. Just a straightforward secondary, and a $55 application fee. Anyone know what kinda stats out of staters need to be considered competitive there?

    From their letter/medical file thing, ALbany mentioned something about getting their web application set up, so that might be the reason for their delay. However, the thought of more web based applications sends chills up my spine.

    18 done...still waiting on albany(last but certainly not least). I called early last week and they said that it would be up on the web by the end of last week. I guess they miscalulated. When I called they also apologized for the delays and the technology problems and joked with me about how I have probably heard all of that before...oh AMCAS...Wehn it is either cry or laugh. I choose laugh.

    Let's see.

    10 completed
    1 just arrived (Utah)
    1 taken off my list (Rush, it was just too lame)
    Still waiting for 5 (Loyola, Finch, MSU (I got money request but no secondary), UCI, and Stanford).

    I don't really understand Finch and Loyola...my app has been in for two months (of course, not verified).

    pointdexter,
    if you're a mn resident, you should call minnesota and see what's up. I got their secondary about a month ago, and I've already interviewed. Have you sent them your paper amcas yet? Bonus: if you're a mn resident and you get their secondary, you automatically get an interview.

    You're right, Barton. It is strange, because I am a MN resident and sent them a paper AMCAS on August 24.

    Are you verified? I assumed that was the reason for the hold-up on my end. I emailed them today. Hopefully I'll hear soon--I sure would like to interview there first.

    I'm verified, as of sometime in august. I was verified before I got their secondary. If you get a secondary, you (MN resident) get an interview. They let me schedule my interview before I even sent in my secondary. The offered me an interview for the following week, so once you get the secondary, things start rolling pretty quickly. Don't worry, but you might want to give them a call and double check, make sure nothing's lost or anything.

    Of my last 5 (out of 20 recieved, still waiting on 2), I'm very nearly done with 3 and have major work to do yet on 2. But I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. :D
    My goal is to have them all in by the time the Aug. MCAT scores come out (I'm also a first-timer), so that I'm free to deal with whatever major screw-ups AMCAS has in store for us over getting those scores to the schools. :rolleyes:
