If a school doesn't have secondary essays, does that mean that there also is no secondary application fee? Do they jump straight to interview invite vs. rejection?

If so, I'm considering adding a couple more (non-secondary application) schools! :thumbup:

Also, I found this quote in a previous thread. It lists some of the non-secondary school. I've searched but couldnt find a thread out there that comprehensively lists the schools that do not have secondary essays. If there is one, please post the link here.

Thanks! :)

Yeah, check out this year's MSAR. They all have secondary application fees listed, don't they?

Sorry Sail, only in your dreams!!! There are some schools with no secondary essays that still make you pay a secondary fee. :rolleyes: Check out the MSAR for more info on the fees from the schools that interest you.

no secondary essay does not mean no secondary fee...it means you get to just write out a check instead of a check and 300 words on why you're special or whatever question they happen to ask.

ALSO no secondary ESSAY means just that there is no ESSAY. There is still a secondary application with those schools and therefore an application fee.

I suppose that would just be too good to be true!

I think I'm suffering from a serious case of buyer's remorse as I think about all the secondary essays I just paid AMCAS for the opportunity to complete! :eek:

Maybe I should have put "no secondary essays" high on my list of important characteristics for prospective schools! :D

Although it does seem like a rip to pay 30$ a school, if you had to enter coursework or send transcripts to all schools you would go insane.
