    I heard UNC sec was available. I've yet to receive an invite, and I'm and in state applicant. How many have received a UNC sec and what are your stats?

    UNC only sends secondaries do people they are goin to be interviewing. I received an email syaing they got my AMCAS and would be contacting me if I was getting a secondary. I'd be suprised if anyone actually has their sec. yet.

    I got the same email and I'm an OOS applicant so I prolly won't be getting a secondary for awhile if ever...

    When was your AMCAS verified? Maybe they just haven't gotten to yours yet...

    June27th. I've received about 11 secondaries including wake's. I'm just getting a little nervous. I thought I had at least the numbers and experience for a secondary.

    Don't freak out yet... they haven't screened anyone. All they did was send an e-mail saying "oh look, we found your amcas laying around, we'll take a look-see and get back to you." No one's ahead of you in that respect. If it would make you feel better, give them a call in the morning... but they're not going to completely ignore you. They'll at least have the decency to flat out reject you ;)

    :luck: :luck:

    UNC's not a typical screener, I really wouldn't expect to hear from them until most people are hearing about interviews. Their secondary application is really more of an extension of the interview than a real secondary. Unless of course you're out of state (like me). Then I guess I hope they let us know sometime soon!

    I agree. UNC takes a while, so don't hold your breath. Many people don't get secondaries until September or October. :D

    i got the email today telling me that they got my primary application and then a half-hour later or so i got their supplemental application. i'm in state and my stats are decent but not unbelievably high or anything. good luck to everyone!!! i'm just waiting to find out that it's a fluke or something or to get an email taking it all back. but just to be sure, if i get a secondary, if i turn it in and all, i get an interview for sure, right?

    What do you mean their secondary is more like an extension of the interview than a real secondary? They prolly do in-state applicants first right? *sigh* It's gonna be a looooong year...

    I'd guess they do out of staters first, since they need to screen them once for secondary then again for interview. In staters only need to get screened for interview. Hold on, it's probalby going to be a while.
