Question What does it mean if you receive a supplemental application request?

I received a supplemental application today from an FM residency program? Does anyone know if that has any significance? Or am I just getting excited for no reason?

As in the residency program requested additional documents in support of your application?

It means the program is interested in knowing more about you. Though it does not guarantee an IV, it is a positive sign. Have you got any IV offers yet?

What exactly is the supplemental application? I think without knowing the questions and content, its hard to answer.

No IV offers yet. I applied late after getting my CK score. The application has a few parts to it. They said they would like to know more about my qualifications. The questions are general "the reason why I chose the program" "how did you hear about us" etc. I am still working on page 1, will add to this if there is more. I don't want to jump the gun in thinking its something positive, but given that I have only gotten acknowledgements and rejections so far, I feel slightly hopeful.
