    I couldn't figure it out at first with my not so great stats.. but then I opened up the SF Chronicle today and realized why-

    "PARTIAL FREEZE ON HIRING AT STANFORD"
    "Stanford said it was imposing the cutbacks because of increasing costs plus a decline in the university's endowment, donations and federal research funding."

    Guess they'll just take my check and run, that is, if I ever finish the secondary;)

    I'm also an august MCATer waiting (was) to hear from them. I emailed an admissions counselor (as per another thread) and she promptly got back to me telling me I hadn't been selected to submit a secondary.

    Guess they didn't even want my fee and they certainly didn't want to waste a stamp on me:p .

    I emailed Patricia Sanchez and her info is on the stanford web site under contact info.

    good luck.

    why those dirty little...

    those diabolical [email protected]@rds...

    i can't believe it

    we should have known something was up when so many of us got our rejections so quickly...they probably didn't even look at my secondary, just tossed it into the garbage and laughed all the way to the bank...
