Are you guys in school right now... or already graduated??? so... the point that i am trying to get to is, if you are in a middle of a semester or a quarter with midterms and term papers hovering over u... how are u guys managing it? is it that you do not care about ur grades this quarter/semester... since once the application is turned in, the grades for this semester do not matter???

For students who are in school right now... how r u all managaing it? i have like 4 midterms and a 7 page paper due by next tuesday... and i dont think i m going to work on the apps till next tuesday!!

I'm mailing my transcripts tomorrow. I don't think I'll submit right away since I'll be tired. I think I'll wake up, proofread, and then submit.

Guys,

Can you tell me how to get a user name and password on for the ADSAAS application? I was told that there is a way to create an account. Do you have to join ADEA? Please help!!

You can't get a username and password until the link for the 2009 cycle is available. If the app doesn't open until 7 pm like smiles said it did last year, we may as well go to bed.

Has the AADSAS opened for anybody else? I'm central time so it should be open now (11pm), but it's still the 2008 one.

Is it not going to work?

You cant submit your application until June 1st I thought so anyways staying up tonight would not matter. Since I am on the West coast I tried setting up at least an account but it doesnt seem to work. Oh well ill just try tomorrow...

You can submit it before June 1st, but AADSAS won't send it out until then. The sooner you get it and your transcripts in, the sooner everything gets verified and sent out. Not worth staying up all night though.

Based on what I remember, AADSAS did not open right at midnight. I suggest everyone to go to sleep early and work on it tomorrow. It's not gonna make a huge difference. Good luck guys.

I went to speak to my preprofessional society at school and they explained that comittee LOR process and I opted out. It is too tedious and takes way too long. I would say go through AADSAS process instead. Try to do everything electronically if possible. As far as the secondaries, the schools that require them will not complete your process until they have that information so you may want to re-consider leaving the country (if you can). :)

yeah....haha... stupid me. I had booked marked it and didn't know they have a brand new link for 2009. I figured it out after doing some google searching, thanks for the link though.

Souldn't be a big deal since we can't submit it until June 1st. So thats why I don't get how people are saying that their app is fully completed?

You can submit it before June 1st. The application won't leave before June 1st, but the sooner you finish it the better because aadsas does applications in waves or batches. Depending on how many people submit between now and June 1st there could be enough for two batches, and if thats the case the people who submit earlier have a slight advantage as their apps will be sent out in the first wave.

Really its splitting hairs, getting your app submitted this early is good enough I would say.

Good Luck to all of you guys. I still have 2 more years of undergrad. :(
Sign up for an account so you can see what they have on the application. Fill it out and save it to your computer (don't waste your time filling coursework). Then next year when you apply, you'll have a bunch of it done already that you can just copy and paste. It will also give you an idea of what you can improve that will show up on your app.

Thanks for the encouragement. Try not to rush to get out of undergrad, try to enjoy the experience. Go ahead and sign up for an account to see what it entails. The better prepared you are the smoother the process is. Good Luck!
