I completed most of my secondaries in September, but I left a few because I just didn't have enough money at the time.

I'm wondering if I would still stand a chance if I turn it in today, like right now. I know it's really late but is it worth a shot? My primary is verified and all my letters are ready to go.. and I would assume everything would get to the schools in 2-3 days.

MCAT: 27
GPA: 3.0

Thanks guys

Id only send secondary’s into schools that do interviews through Feb/march.

I applied late last year I sent a bunch of my secondaries (like 3) around this time of year but only to private schools or schools that admissions run a little later. Places like MSU COM that are a state university and have most of their class selected by September don’t bother with. I got into 2 of the three I sent late secondaries to which were all private schools.

Best of luck

Where do you find out how late schools do interviews? Are there certain schools that are slower/later in the process?
i think most schools interview late into the season. i read somewhere in these forums that they still interview to fill their waitlist. i know nycom is very late compared to most schools but im not sure if there are any other schools late in the process too.
