I'm sorry, but you are kidding right? :D unless the UCLA secondary changed from last year, that thing was long, it had like 6 short essays, and if you applied disadvantaged, you had some extra stuff to fill out...I can't comment about duke and columbia.
NYMC, harvard are pretty easy....

GTown and SLU are pretty easy also. Each has a short essay but both are do-able in one day.

Jefferson's is another easy one, if you can even call it a secondary.

*In my book, Duke wins this one hands down...6 short-answers (1000 character limit each), 2 essays (5000 character limit each)...This adds up to around 2300 words. Talk about screening for drive!

Adding Case Western to the Tough category--the essay can be time-consuming, if for no other reason than that you get to write about something important to YOU, so tend to put a little more love and affection into it (at least I did).

Wash U, Tulane, and Baylor were definitely not mindless but they seemed to be relatively quick also, so I'll add them to the East category.

hey, there was nothing else on TV besides a rerun of ER. So I thought I'd waste my time and be cool for once.

Creighton is also easy. One essay about 'why Creighton'- a limit of 250 words.
P.S. Sorry that I could not put it in the order you guys were. I'm new to SDN and am still trying to figure out how to use it! Great place though.

Creighton is already on the list as "trivial." To copy a list and add to it, just hit the quote button at the bottom of the post, delete that poster's comments and the quote codes at the beginning and end and insert your additions.

Welcome to SDN!! :) Glad you found us!!:cool:

I am agreement that Duke's secondary was by far the hardest application that I have yet submitted. I was very surpised that schools like JH were much easier to complete.

Hi Guys,

I just wanted to say, I understand about the Duke secondary (current first year at Duke). I actually filled it out 4 months after the "deadline". It took me a while to do some research (we had a question about the ethics of stem cells) and come up with a good moral dilemma. My advice, do a good job on it. Remember Duke is non-rolling, so don't worry about how long it takes (call and ask how negotiable the deadline is this year), just do the best you can.

K! Feel free to PM me with questions

Saint Louis University's isn't so bad, just add comments not on aamcas and/or why do you want to be a doctor. Probably could be categorized as easy.

I didn't see JHU on this list -- four short questions, I'd say between moderate and hard.

*flips coin*

I say moderate . . . a lot easier than UVA/Pritzker/Case.
