    This happened to a friend of mine at Temple. She sent the secondary a couple days after she got the interview request. As far as I know it went through ok; she's already done the interview and no question was asked about the secondary coming in after the request. I guess they really loved the primary!?!

    I also got an interview invite for Temple without a secondary or a check. I eventually did have to pay and I got in accepted a couple of weeks later.

    Don't forget about Vanderbilt - they base interviews only off the primary app.

    ????

    Which school are you referring to?

    If it is Vandy you must have the secondary completed and returned to the office by the date you interview.

    Well, I would think that even if you were granted an interview based upon your primary that the school will eventually need your secondary to come to a final decision on your file. Then again....I know nothing about this medical school. However, even if the secondary application were not necessary for a final decision by the admissions committee why would you pass up the opportunity to write another essay? The secondary essay is another opportunity to talk about why you would be a good candidate for their medical school.

    The best thing for you to do would be to call their admissions office and ask them about the situation.

    I got a pre-secondary interview at Pitt earlier this year, and they still needed the secondary completed by the deadline (the sooner the better of course).

    Pre-secondary interview is good news! Congrats, they must like you.
