    Most schools and the AMCAS application ask the question "Have you applied to us before?" Can someone please tell me what my answer should be if last year I applied to the schools through AMCAS, but withdrew and my application and never sent the secondaries. I didn't get an acceptance or a rejection because I didn't complete teh application process, so does that mean I applied or I didn't?

    You did not apply if you did not complete the secondaries. Hope this helps...

    Is every school different as to what they consider "applied before?"

    well i answered yes for the schools i previously applied via amcas for. Because all the schools did recv that application and opened a folder for you.
    Also when i asked amcas before i submitted, i told them i didn't know which schools i had applied to-- they said that i'd have to ORDER my old application and it lists all the schools i did submit to last time.

    so i just said 'yes' to those schools that are on the amcas. but yes i'd call to make sure

    Just a thought, but if you check yes, then on your secondaries, the schools will probably expect you to fill out the section about "how you improved since you last applied", so you will have a little more work to do.

    For this situation, I recommend calling amcas just to make sure. :)
