    For this year, Wake Forest will screen applicants before sending them secondaries, yes?

    Yes, Wake Forest is screening prior to sending secondary applications. I believe that's always been their policy. I guess it's because 2/3's of their class is composed of instate applicants.

    As far as I know, Wake is a solid and reputable school. Only problem is that Winston Salem leaves something to be desired from what I've heard.

    I called WFU today (cuz 2 weeks ago they told me to call back in 2 weeks) and they told me they don't know anything yet. They aren't receiving verified electronic apps from AMCAS (which is what they're waiting for). They told me to call back at the end of the week. They hope to either be receiving verified electronic apps or institute a contingency plan at that time.

    This school is one of the very few that doesn't allow you to fulfill prereqs with community college work, be advised of that. They won't be getting my application money.

    Are you completely sure that won't accept community college work? I called all the schools I was going to apply to and asked them. I'm not sure what Wake Forest said but I will go and check my notes. I don't imagine I would put them on my list though if they didn't. I could have made a mistake though. Yeah, I don't want to send them any more money if they are just going to reject me. Did you speak with someone in their office?
