Is there a compiled list here on SDN for the secondaries that employ a screening process?

Furthermore, do the schools that don't require a gpa/mcat-screen even read our personal statements before they send 'em out?

Thanks

the schools that don't screen will send out secondaries automatically without reading a damned thing. they will wait for your secondary to come before evaluating your entire application..

i think?

Secondaries, in general, really are a way for the school to make more money.

$100 to NYMC just to say that a comittee letter will show up soon and that I don't have any relatives that are faculty members.

Yeah we have a list. It is called "Secondaries that are already Out '07"
We have designated which of the secondaries that are out are from screeners, and when people started getting through the screens.

For schools that haven't sent the invites yet, you can check them out on the MSAR.
