Can I submit my application before my letter of recs are completed?

I am done with everything else but my references. I have sent out letter of rec requests to therapists but they have not completed them yet. Do I have to wait to for them to complete them before I submit my application?

my application was submitted on 7/25/17 and was verified on 7/26/17. Question is there anyone else we can view the calculated GPA that PTCAS calculates. There's a discrepancy with the GPA shown on my application and what a program is telling what they see on their side.

You are able to submit prior to having your references submit your LOR. However, I would ensure that the references are indeed going to submit them prior to you submitting your application. I submitted my application on July 22nd, and it was verified on the 27th.

Do schools usually let you know when they receive an application?

The school I applied to did, due to the fact that they had a supplemental fee that had to be paid.

The only way I know is by downloading your application on the "My Programs" tab. Sounds like a good question to call PTCAS about if a school isn't matching what you show. Then again, the school may have their own scale they are using to calculate grades that is separate from PTCAS.

Awesome, thanks
I see both therapists daily and they've told me they would be willing to write me LORs. It's just a matter of them getting it done at this point.

Guess it's time for me to review my apps and submit

Can you submit your application before your shadowing hours are verified? I see above that you don't have to wait for you LORs to come in, is it the same as that? Meaning once transcripts are entered, essay is written, you can submit?

You can add more observation hours and request a recommendation letter after you e-submit.

Check your essay and program specific questions because you can't change them.

There should not be a discrepancy.
In this case, I would call them to find out the root of the discrepancy.

Hi 2nd Adulthood! I also applied early decision at SMU! Have you heard back from them? I know they may not let us know until Sept 25, but I'm dying to know if they are starting to send out acceptances yet!

Hi Kipperwok! Not yet. Fingers crossed for both of us!
