Do schools put expiration dates on their secondaries besides the deadline in january? I remember particular school threads saying that some secondaries say there is only 3 weeks to complete the application upon receiving it. Anyone remember which schools are like this?

If there is an expiration date, they'll tell you in the email. But seriously, why let them sit around for so long that it becomes an issue? If i had my admissions cycle to do over again, one of the things I would do would be to space the submission of my AMCASs out so that I didn't get deluged with a dozen all at once.

I know the UCs give like 30 days from the time of receipt. Really though, don't go by deadlines... I made the mistake of thinking that, because the deadline wasn't until Jan. or Feb. that I was perfectly okay submitting secondaries in late Oct. and early Nov. It was incredibly stupid and resulted in getting few interview offers. It worked out for me, but I certainly wouldn't do it again if I had to re-submit.
