So just to start it off, has anyone heard back from schools about IIs yet? I know some MD-only people have

I really thought about doing a PhD in Anthropology rather than going to med school. Although both are passions for me, they're very different. This video helped me decide what I wanted to do.. There's so many interesting options out there!

I am still working on the AMCAS primary and was wondering if I should still include my research experience in the activities section even though we are given a separate space for all research experience? I am also applying to some MD programs but don't want to be redundant.

I still included them as activities and I applied to many MD only programs. Just know that they probably won't care as much about the specifics of your research as would phd interviewers .

Did anyone try to group 2+ research experiences into one activities slot? I am trying to figure out what format to use, since that doesn't leave nearly enough room to explain even the basics.

Nope I did a different slot for each activity and chose to omit menial stuff like being a grader for a class. Research is like the most important thing in regards to explaining

Yeah I got secondary like 1.5-2 weeks ago
When did you turn in your primary app? @Gorilla-san, I also turned in my primary app around 7/11 and have not gotten a secondary from UCSF. LizzyM 81 and from an ivy league, so I'm wondering if I should be calling them in case for some reason they didn't receive my primary application. +pity+thoughts?

I was verified 7/5 and received the UCSF secondary on 7/29. LizzyM 75 so if I got it I'm sure you will too

thanks man! I'll wait a few more days for it

Hey man, I was verified on 6/16 and I didn't receive a secondary from UCSF until 8/2 so I wouldn't worry about it! I heard rumors that they look at in state apps first, so maybe those secondaries went out earlier?
