    1. Do we send the LORs and transcripts directly to AMCAS or to each and every school we apply to?

    2. Do we have to request the secondaries or will they come automatically due to AMCAS?

    Thanks in advance!!

    1) You have to send them directly to schools. I heard people usually do this within 2 weeks after sending out the primary app.

    2) Seconadaries will come after your application is verified by AMCAS and tramsitted to schools. Then schools will decide whether or not they will actually send secondaries. Some of them have online secondaries so you do not have ti wait.

    Don't send transcripts to each and every school. AMCAS will forward your grades to all of the schools to which you apply. :)

    I was talking about LORs. I assumed that you know that you have to send transcripts to AMCAS. Sorry for the confusion.

    For some schools, if it says so on their website, you can go ahead and fill out the secondaries immediately. Otherwise it may take thyem months to send it to you...

    Check out this site made by Drako, which lists most schools that have online secondaries:

    Does this include all TX schools too? Do I have to send my LOR to each and every TX school I'm applying to or do I just send it to TMDSAS? Also, do I send any LOR to AMCAS at all?
