    Okay, having a bit of a problem with the NYMC web application (a bit reminiscent of AMCAS). I am on the second page, and when I press continue, it gives me a warning note instructing me to "select correct value for 'have you applied to NYMC before'" I swear I haven't, and have noted that, but it won't let me continue. Anyone else having a similiar problem and/or a solution before I call them up?

    Also, Jefferson is the only school that has not sent me a secondary. Does anyone know if they use that as a cut, or if I should just wait a bit longer?

    Okay, my bad,

    I just read some of the NYMC web page, and noticed that my problem is Netscape related. I'll try it with IE and see what happens. I think I am just a little computer- sensitive after all my experiences with AMCAS. Of course, any info on Jefferson would still be appreciated...

    I printed off a copy of Jefferson's online secondary which was in Acrobat format. Even though there isn't a password to access it, am I suppose to wait until they tell me I can? Is the online different from the one they send out?-I don't remember a question asking about what other professions I've considered.

    I don't remember that question either. I think Rochester was the only school with an on-line secondary that didn't want it sent until they asked for it. I sent off the Jefferson secondary over a month ago. I haven't heard a word from them, though.

    I sent mine in 3 weeks ago, and they have yet to cash the check.. Perhaps my application is still sitting there, or in the trash bin already :rolleyes:

    :p Oh, I'm sure they'd cash the check before tossing your app! :D Seriously, give it a little more time. If it took a week to get there, then 2 more weeks to get it properly filed -- that would be like the speed of light compared to AMCAS!

    SMW when you said "haven't heard from them" did you mean pre or post secondary? I feel odd just sending it in w/o haven't gotten a single thing from them, not even a short generic email.

    Haven't heard a thing pre- or post-secondary.
    I know they have my "unverified" AMCAS , because I sent it to them with delivery confirmation. They're supposed to have something from AMCAS, because there's a date behind their name on my AMCAS app (which probably means just name, rank & serial no.). My feeling was that any school that had their secondary on-line without requiring a password or something was probably going to get a lot of unsolicited secondaries in this year of years, and, if they weren't going to throw them away, I wanted mine to be among them. I don't know what to make of their silence. I suppose I should call them.

    I know MCP-H asked the question about what two other careers you would choose...but I don't remember that one on the Jefferson secondary. Oh crap, did I miss something somewhere?

    That's where I saw that question! No, I don't think you missed anything. I don't think it was on Jeff's secondary at all. I think dknykid was mistaken.
