    Got this email today, along with the one from Pritzker which is discussed in another thread. UPenn screens, and the just of this email is "hello". Thought I'd post it incase anyone is interested:

    Dear applicant,

    We have received preliminary data from AMCAS indicating that you
    intend to apply to the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
    Thank you for your interest in our school.

    Although the AMCAS process has been delayed, we are eager to
    communicate with you, and are sending, via US mail, our Admissions
    Brochure.

    Once we have received your completed, verified application from
    AMCAS, we will contact you again regarding Penn's supplemental
    application process. We anticipate that our supplemental application
    will be available on or around August 1. Meanwhile, you are welcome
    to have your letters of recommendation sent to our Office of
    Admissions:

    School of Medicine Admissions
    Suite 100, Stemmler Hall
    3450 Hamilton Walk
    Philadelphia, PA 19104-6056

    More information about our program is available on our web site, http://www.med.upenn.edu/admiss

    Thank you,

    Office of Admissions
    University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine

    I got the email, too. I was wondering where you read that Penn screens applicants.

    Penn doesn't screen. They also have one of those "5-minute" secondaries (at least last year they did).

    maybe I am wrong, but I figured since they said "Once we have received your completed, verified application from AMCAS, we will contact you again regarding Penn's supplemental application process" it means that they want to look at your amcas app first, which would be unnecessary if they do not screen. Also they did not say "you will get a secondary", they said "we'll tell you about our secondary process." I read this as a nice way of saying they will screen. I may be wrong, the MSAR doesn't say one way or the other for penn, if I jumped to the wrong conclusion I apologize.
