    Hey guys, so I applied to 5 schools: Stony Brook/Buffalo/NYU/Temple/and UMDNJ...
    I have only sent out the electronic application fee to Stony/Buffalo/and a check to NYU and UMDNJ. I am pretty sure everything was in/complete by 7/29. I was wondering if I am missing something here because everyone has been mentioning secondaries and I have not seen any info about them from any of these schools. Do other schools have long secondary apps? Do the ones I applied to have these?
    Please fill me in!

    NYU secondary is given to you when they call you for an interview. UMDNJ doesn't have a secondary to fill out according to the supplemental information from AADSAS. Temple will email you their secondary and ask you to submit your payment. Stony and Buffalo I have no idea.

    hope this helps!

    Why only 5?! Balling stats I presume?

    Also... as far as I know... none of those schools have any secondary essay questions.

    NYU written secondary will be handed out during your interview. Other than that... not much else to tell you.

    lol, 5 because I do not think its that necessary to apply to a ton of schools I have no interest in/I don't have the funds! I have 3.85sGPA/3.85oGPA/20AA/20TS and I feel like if that doesn't get me interviews at any of the 5 schools I chose, why would I have a better chance elsewhere.

    Logically speaking... you've made the right choice.

    But better safe than sorry? I think my 2 years off is good... 3 years off is kind of stretching it if for some unknown reason I don't make the cut?
