ADEA PASS questions

Hello all

I would really appreciate it if you answer my questions regarding ADEA PASS.

I'm applying to OS programs.

1) Is there a significant benefit in submitting PASS application early? I'm not talking about early vs late but more of early vs normal. I looked through the forum and most people said OS program directors don't even touch the submitted applications until the deadline.

2) If I submit PASS application in early Aug, is this considered late? The reason is because I want to add upcoming, future experiences/accomplishment to PASS but PASS does not allow future experiences to be added.

Thank you all

I've spoken to a few different program directors on when they would like the application submitted. They all had the same response that as long as it is in before the deadline, they are looked at the same.

To piggy back off this topic... are you sending the 2x2 as an attachment in PASS? Also many progrms require a dental school transcript in addition to whats sent in to ADEA PASS , is that real?
