    Are you guys answering the questions on a separate piece of paper or on the secondary itself?

    On the application itself...don't want the possibility of them losing the extra sheets of paper. I typed my responses using size 10 font. Limited my responses to a max of 8 to 9 lines...succinct not verbose. I'll see what happens (it's currently under review)

    For two of the questions I need a little extra space,so I continued my answers on a seperate piece of paper. The instructions indicated that this was acceptable.

    I thought Loyola was more intimidating. It is still in my to do pile (see my web site).

    You can either use adobe or a more tedious method of actually cutting and pasting; I did the latter. Just taped my responses onto the application and photocopied it. Sounds retarded, but the end result looks professional.

    Stick with it and you'll find an interesting topic to elaborate on. You've lived over 20 years...there must be something that you may be overlooking.

    If you think Loyola's is somewhat difficult, then enjoy the Rush one. It is the most difficult application I have done since the adcom uses your responses as a selection factor for interviews; all the questions are typical of interview questions. Also, in your response to question 12b on practicing in a medically underserved area, if you put "NO" then you can probably kiss your chances good-bye(check out their missions statement and you'll know why).

    Good Luck with everything.

    I put "no" for the under-served question. To be honest, I really don't know the answer to this question. I was worried that if I put "yes" and gave a corny explanation, they would see it as bs. Does anyone know whether you can receive an interview from Rush even if you answered "no"??
