I plan on submitting the AMCAS primary as early as possible, but I start a summer research fellowship on 6/15/2008.

Can I include this on my primary if I submit before 6/15? Does AMCAS ask for specific dates or just month/year?

Let's say I wait submit it on 6/17, is this really much different than 6/7 in terms of earliness? If not, I may just wait until I start to submit...

Probably not a big difference and no they just ask for month and year.

You can list it and then under the description of the activity, indicate that it doesn't start until mid-June (along with whatever other things you want to mention about this position).

LizzyM once mentioned that you should wait until you've started an activity to list it, even if only by a few days.

in any case, if you can get your amcas in before july, you'll be good.

What's the wait time on verification for mid-June as compared with early June? Does it take a lot longer in mid-June?

it might take a little longer, but it's not bad.

plus even if you submit early, there's a delay in transmission of your apps to schools. last year the first batch went out June 21st or something like that. even if your app was verified, it didn't go out before then.

Great, thanks! I'll probably just hold off until I start then...

Yeah, I saw that before I started the thread... I guess it's the exact same question but I still wanted more opinions.

Probably should have just resurrected that thread, oh well! Thanks for posting that!
