    I just got it in the mail. Didn't call them or anything. It took awhile though. I was verified a month and a half ago, and I just got Drew's secondary last week. I bet they're still pretty behind; I wouldn't worry about it. :)

    I have one you can use. ;) I thought after 8 secondaries I was done and I told me profs the same, so I am not going to fill this one out. I am tired.

    Seriously, I got a postcard in the mail saying my AMCAS application was recieved (as of August) the same day I got my secondary application in the mail. I received both of them in the mail in late November, postmarked the same day.

    it says that they are selective with their secondaries too, but with how this year is going, who knows? and what is "selective", is it like stanford (which i would doubt), or somebody else?

    btw, i have read in a couple places that drew is fairly slow with the whole process, i imagine they have so few applicants that they are going to interview that they take their time sorting through it all. anyhow, i read one timeline that had somebody get a secondary in november, send it off in late november, and then get an interview invite in january for a january interview.

    Approximately 24 of the 145 students admitted each year to UCLA have been admitted to the Drew/UCLA program. Students are trained for the first two years at UCLA, then physically in the the third and fourth years at Charles Drew University/Martin Luther King Hospital. The mission is to identify candidates for admission who have demonstrated that they are committed to working in underserved communities as physicians.
    Those 24 places are in addition to the 121 UCLA seats available. If you wish to be a UCLA/Drew candidate there should be somewhere in your UCLA application information that you are committed to serving underserved communities, with evidence other than mere ethnicity to back that up.

    Interested applicants should contact: Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science, 11621 East 120th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90059, or call
    323 563 4960
