    Hi,


    I have heard that some Med schools review files in the order secondaries are sent not in the order LORs are received, has anyone heard this? If so which schools do that?

    thanx

    How would that work? Some guy that never sent in his LORs could halt the whole process just because his secondary got in first. I doubt the schools would want to do that.

    I have heard this as well but I don't know if its true. In responce to the person who questioned how it work imagine this situation. Person A sends in his secondary on 9/10 but his letters don't arrive until 10/9. Person B sends in his 9/25 and his letter arrive 10/1. Then person A's application would be evaluated first. However, if person C submitted his secondary 9/10 but the school still hasn't gotten his letters then they will skip it and process it shortly after his letters arrive.
