Hello!
Due to the pandemic, I had to push back my application a few weeks and I wanted to know if I submitted it now, would I still be able to be considered for schools that have the application deadline of October 1st. From my understanding, AMCAS verification is taking about 6 weeks I believe as there is a delay. At this rate, my application would be verified by maybe the first or second week of October. Would schools who have application deadlines of October 1st consider my application as late or on time if it was submitted to AMCAS for verification on 09/01/2020.

Thank you.

Your application must be ready for processing in order to be considered submitted by school deadline, This means the primary and all transcripts have been submitted and received by AMCAS
