We do not send secondary applications to every applicant. Applications are screened on a rolling basis once they have been verified and marked complete through AMCAS. The verification process can be lengthy, and we do not forward secondary applications to anyone before we evaluate the AMCAS documents. Selected AMCAS applicants will be contacted with an invitation to complete our secondary application electronically. We will accept no paper applications. The secondary application contains questions relating to our institutional mission, requiring short written responses, as well as entry of some biographical data. Applicants will be able to access their electronic file at all times to view the application status and to see which (if any) materials are missing from the file. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that applications are complete and submitted. CMSRU will not extend deadlines for applications for any reason. All completed applications will be screened, and selected applicants will be invited to schedule an interview.
The fee for our secondary application is $100, payable at the time of submission. Applicants who qualify for the Fee Assistance Program (FAP) through AMCAS will automatically have the secondary application fee waived.
