    Hi all, I'm Canadian and this is my first time applying to AMCAS, in Canada we don't have secondaries. So my question is, when the school gives you a secondary do you have to pay again? does every school have a different fee for a secondary? or is it included in the initial money you pay when you first send your application?

    If you have to pay for the secondary how much?
    side note: I was planning to apply to 50 schools.... (and 10 in canada) so I'm wondering if these secondaries are expensive

    Thank you very much

    hmmm, I don't think Howard is a state school, but I don't know how much their secondary is. I thought the Harvard one is free, but I also can't remember. Baylor is free. BU is $100...I think there was a thread on this a while back. You may want to search it out.

    harvard isn't free, unless someone was playing a joke on me with a fake website...

    IIRC it was $60.

    MSAR (Medical School Admission Requirements) does not have a website, as far as I know. It's a book available from AAMC (you can order it online)that lists the requirements, curriculum, etc. for all U.S. medschools. It's the Bible -- a must have!
