Hey everyone. I wanted to make a list of time-sensitive secondaries to help people (including myself) prioritize which secondaries to get done first. I was searching the forum and found that there is no consolidated list.

I think this list could be helpful to people applying to a lot of schools or those who are traveling/vacationing over the application season. I hear stories of people coming back from vacation and submitting their secondaries only to find out that the deadline for that school has passed. So, lets not let that happen to anyone.

I'll start us off!

From receipt of secondary:
Wash U in St.L - 4 Weeks
UCSF - 4 Weeks

UTHSC has a secondary????

I'm pretty sure that the original post was referring to UT-Memphis, in case you're confused with another school in Texas or something...and if you are in fact wondering if UT-Memphis has a secondary, the answer is yes (although they haven't been sent out yet as far as I know).

MSU secondary does *not* have to be submitted w/in two weeks (of payment). the secondary fee must be paid w/in two weeks of receiving the email inviting you to pay the secondary fee. after paying the fee, you can turn in the secondary app. anytime before the deadline (sometime in the winter). the language on their site says "strongly recommend" that the secondary is submitted w/in two weeks (after paying the fee) but it's not required. I believe that as recently as last year there *was* a two week deadline

I know this because I am dragging my feet on this secondary and I checked the language on their website at least three times
