Members don't see this ad.
So I am getting a lot of secondaries, but I am curious to know if any of these schools that are mailing them out now are screening at all. I mean, there is no point in getting excited about some school that sends secondaries to everyone, but maybe some are screening so its like getting past a small hurdle.

Many schools don't screen before sending out secondaries just because of the fact that they want the money from every additional secondary. I would assume that many times the committee or the people who initially screen applications see many applications that don't stand a realistic chance at receiving an interview but still send out a secondary to that person because the want the $50-100 that it would bring.

Duke doesn't screen actually, everyone gets a chance to fill out a secondary.
