    Has anyone received any secondaries from schools? I have been verified since the second day of AMCAS opening but have not received any secondaries.

    Also, my premed committee just sent out LORs with the committee letter. Will medical schools hold on to this even though the AMCAS apps have not gone out?

    Yup. They just hold on to them until the rest of your app shows up. Then they review it.

    Which schools will automatically send you secondaries and which schools will actually screen applications first? Anyone that knows any schools just throw them out there.

    Almost all schools will send you a secondary because they want to bleed every last bit of money from you. Schools that will pre-screen that I know of are UCSF and Vanderbilt.

    Jolie South - really? thats pretty sweet! i do malaria research but i've never seen them like that before!

    90% or greater of schools will send secondaries to everyone.

    at the beginning, i spent 4-6 hours per secondary. after a while though, you'll see that they ask similar questions and you can "recycle" essays.

    I know that Hopkins, Columbia, USC, Duke, Stanford, and Northwestern sends secondaries to all applicants.

    A lot of these questions have been answered on the 2008-2009 Secondary Application Thread. I started the thread as a place to consolidate all the questions about secondary apps.

    http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=530082

    Try to post new questions there so that all the info about secondaries stays on one thread. :)
