    Does anyone know when we can expect invites from NYCOM? Anyone from last years cycle remember when people started getting emails/phone calls?

    November is when the invitation is sent or when the interview is actually is.

    So these schools send the secondaries and invites for interviews at the same time?

    From my knowledge, Western University sent my secondary along with the interview invite. NYCOM sends the secondary only if you're invited to interview. All of forementioned schools screen. However, as time progresses, secondaries may be sent out before your interview invitation due to a backup in interviews.

    For NYCOM, the letter says:

    "Invitations for interview will be sent continuosly from November to May".

    Not sure about that. You're not sent a secondary application until you're invited to interview. In theory, if you're not interviewed, there is no need to send your LORs. That's not going to happen to any of us though. :p

    I sure hope not... but my school sends out letters once to all the schools I apply to... so NYCOM has had my letters for almost a month :eek:

    That should be fine. I'm just saying there's no pressing need for it.

    Okay. I don't think it will hurt. Don't worry about it.
