Hey guys,
For those w/ experience and those who just know...
can we list schools that are essay-less in their secondaries?

I think UPenn was the only school I applied to that did not have any essays in their secondary application.

UCSF also did not have any required essays, but you could attach a description of your research experiences if you wanted.

Thanks for the list everyone,

I now know for sure to which "additional" if any I'm going to be applying.

michigan state, UMDNJ-RWJ

Michigan State is technically not a send a check secondary.. because if they actually do decide to interview you, THEN you have to fill out secondaries..

I think just sending the check is better than the school asking for a check AND secondary essays, although the cutoff will most likely be based on GPA/MCAT...

AECOM is a send-a-check secondary except if you 1) have a felony, 2) have applied to medical school in previous cycles and 3) have taken off any time between undergrad and medical school.

Any of those require an explanation.

*Harvard
(for one of their two programs, I think the other one does have an essay, but it's a more competitive program).

*Drexel

i wouldn't say that HST is more competitive per se. i believe they interview 150 for 30, which is roughly the same as NP, which is interview around 700 for 130. and there are less applicants for HST than NP, as expected.

kidding, kidding

HA.......HA.

I just looked over it and decided to withdraw my app in the spot. I still have some resemblance of dignity and self-respect left, and that application threatened to end it.

BU has the one optional one, don't know how many of you fill it out. i didn't. i thought i was the coolest kid when i got an email saying that my file was on hold cuz they were waiting for Fall grades; so many people get rejected right off the bat. Sent the A's in January and got rejected a couple days afta.

Oklahoma, unless you're OOS (asks for your ties to the state)

Tulane also doesn't really have any essays, just a couple of quick questions about what specialty you want to go into and the like.
