    Hey everyone. The UCLA status check works now. Find it at:
    https://www.medstudent.ucla.edu/applications/appstat/appforms/status.htm
    Once you enter your SSN, birthdate, and AMCAS ID# it will show you what your status is. There was also a button next to the "Supplemental Information Status" field that allowed me to start filling out their online secondary application.

    Thanks for the post! I had given up checking the site, but when I checked this morning I had a supplemental submit button too. Very exciting.

    I submitted mine on August 14 - there's no supplemental button on mine.

    Could those with the button please let everyone know the questions on the secondary, if there are any?

    They are also requesting rec. letters along with the supplemental. Does anybody know how many rec. letters and from what kind of recommenders (clinical, non-science) we need to send. I couldn't find this info on the site but I may not have looked hard enough either. Thanks

    There's one more question. I'll list them all below. Also, you have 800 characters (including spaces) to answer each question.

    1) Describe involvement in the ONE most important non-academic activity that has been important in your life.
    2) What has been the ONE most unique leadership, entrepreneurial or creative activity in which you participated?
    3) What has been the ONE most important volunteer work you have done and why was it meaningful?
    4) What has been the ONE most important honor you have received? Why do you view this as important?
    5) What has been your most scholarly project (thesis, research, or field of study in basic or clinical science or the humanities)? Describe one and give number of hours, dates and advisor.
    6) Describe a problem in your life. Include how you dealt with it and how it influenced your growth.
    7) List major paid work experience during (or since) college. Give dates, description, approximate hours worked (list the most recent first).
    8) The hardship question.

    Do they require all questions be answered? Some of these seem quite redundant.

    ssd: I mailed my UC application on the first day it was available. If I remember correctly, UCLA said they received/processed it on August 22 or 23.

    sundevil1: I don't know.

    kutastha: They say: "Please only provide information you believe is important. It is not necessary to supply information in all sections."
