    Its nice that the responses are optional. Finally a school that doesn't force you to describe a non-existent hardship, but asks for one if its relevant! What a novel idea! It just seems more progressive than the other secondaries I'm working on which seem rigid.

    I know they screen. I'd like to ask you when your primary was sent to them and are you a CA resident?

    I'm OOS. I just checked the status page and found out that they want me to submit the secondary: https://www.medstudent.ucla.edu/applications/appstat/appforms/status.htm

    they never emailed me though.

    I had my AMCAS verified Mid-June.

    Dang! Me too. Are there other schools where we are supposed to be checking status? I thought we would receive email invites.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I've been verified for over a week but when I go to the UCLA status page and type in my info, they say that they don't have my record there. Am I the only one like this?

    check to make sure you're signing in for 2007 and not 2006. Other than that it might just take awhile for you to get into their system. I wouldn't worry yet. Good Luck!

    For those who want to be a bruin, please be patient. I submitted my primary last year around the end of June, my application was complete by the beginning of September, didn't interview until mid-April and was accepted a month later. UCLA definetly takes their time, so don't lose hope. Good luck guys.

    Yeah, they don't even start reviewing applications until September. It's going to be a longgg road.

    Interviews start in October, but the school takes its sweet time making any final decisions.

    P.S. Feel free to send any questions about UCLA my way.

    quantemmechanic, thanks for the post. Without it, I will probably miss the whole thing and receive an application withdraw note in Sept. Thanks.
