    I don't think too many ppl will be volunteering to read secondaries now that med school will be starting in a few weeks for most. Plus ppl are busy with moving and such. They're just secondaries anyway. An excuse to get your $$$$$.

    I suppose, I have a bunch of people on this list, if they get drowned in essays they can let me know to take them off this list.

    Isn't helping people what you all want to do? That's what I read in every essay so far!

    Man if only someone would write a personal statement saying how they hate people. It would be a breath of fresh air! :laugh:

    I currently have jury duty as well as working evenings. Thus I will be delayed in replying to essays.

    I haven't gotten any secondary essays yet. I'm guessing this thread isn't important to people.

    I was dismissed from jury duty, so now I'm back to full form.

    Just reorganizing a little bit. I'll volunteer to help people with a few specific schools, that way I can specialize on the types of essays that I need to read. So anybody who wants help on these secondaries, send them to me first because I'll have lot's of experience with them:

    UCSF
    Boston University
    Finch School of Medicine
    Temple University
    Albert Einstein
    Cornel (except for the why Cornel question)
