    i received a notification from mich state that they received my preliminary info from AMCAS. problem is, i did not apply here!
    here is also something crazy, they want $55 so they can decide if they want to send you a secondary! so what the hell was the $30 primary fee for? wasn't that for anything? they won't even look at my app until they get the $55, and then i'm not even guaranteed a secondary (this is not like vandy used to be, where a secondary=interview). tell me, what was teh $30 for if they won't even look at my app? i thought the primary fee covered the decision to send out a secondary, and the secondary fee covered the decision to review the material. what a bunch of crap.

    I'd double check the return email address to see if it matches the admissions office's website email address. A little sarcasm in there, but seriously I just can't think of any med school in the US being so ridiculous in their practices and procedures. Please tell me you found out someone was playing a practical joke on you.

    Strange. If you want to share what school it is I'm sure we would all be interested. It sounds like a chain letter type letter. Are you really sure it is real.
    I would call the school and ask what it is all about. Either that or I wouldn't do anything, you didn't apply there so trash it.

    Amy Beth, If I'm not mistaken I think he wrote Michigan State in his post.
