    Hi,

    I'm sure this question has been asked before, but I'm having trouble finding it in the archives.

    So here is my situation:

    I'm taking the DATs late June and my LORs should all be in into AADSAS by mid july. I have filled out everything else on AADSAS, but the only thing that holding me back from esubmiting is my LORs. From reading some posts, I get the sense that you should esubmit your stuff even though your lor aren't in, b/c you can always send em in later? (did i understand that right?)

    What are my options? Can I esubmit before my LOR's are in, so colleges can get a head start on what I have?

    plz help
    Thanks!

    It has been asked many times and can also be found on the AADSAS information PDF. Yes you can submit and they will send the LOE's as they arrive after your app has been sent.

    You can esubmit as long as you have your references set in stone. If you are submitting via snail mail, make sure to print off a LOR matching form. If you are getting them electronically, even better. However, I would suggest that your references are 100% certain they will write you the letter, b/c otherwise I don't think you can change a reference once you have esubmitted it (I could be wrong, this is what i've gathered). Just get ur application in as soon as you can...Schools wont look @ ur application though until you have ur DAT scores submitted too.... but it helps to have the aadsas application in early so that is set to go.

    You CAN still add evaluators after e-submitting. they will mail the new letters at a later date.

    how about transcripts? do we have to wait until AADSAS calculates the GPA or can we just e-submit after the transcripts are sent out?

    Submit now. AADSAS won't calculate your GPA unless you pay first.

    You can also just send LORs straight to schools and bypass AADSAS.

    Most schools are OK with that.

    So we can esubmit without paying? When should we pay AADSAS?

    You pay AADSAS when you e-submit. :)
