Would you guys let me know what the supplemental questions are for
NYCOM, PCOM, LECOM , MSUCOM, CCOM, WVSOM, VCOM, PCSOM, UMDNJ-SOM?
It so happens that I will be going outside the country from the month of Dec to Jan and want to take care of my secondaries before I leave, even though my primary application hasnt been verified yet.
Do you guys think its a bad idea to leave before submitting all my secondaries?
Are there any schools with supplemental deadlines?

thanks!

I think if you're planning on finishing around 10 suplemental applications before December you've got your work cut out for you... But it would be a GREAT idea to do it that quickly since your behind the game, it will just take hard work! All of the schools have supplemental deadlines, go to AACOM.org, and take a look... And yes, it would be a horrible idea to wait until you come back to finish secondaries, that would put it to sometime in January... Look at the "accepted" list on SDN and you'll see the numerous people that are already accepted to schools, it would be a good idea to get in your 2ndaries before you leave... Good luck! :luck:

I just received the secondary for Lecom-Erie. The form looks so ancient! Do we have to apply using these forms or is there an online version? For those we have completed the secondary, did you have to separate the pages and use a typewriter?
