    Well, I am applying this cycle... but if this MSTP thing works out, I will more likely graduate with the class of 2015... or 2016.... or 2017... :eek: :smuggrin: .

    I'll probably wait until my MCAT results before submitting my application (just took it yesterday), but I hope to be applying for 2008 admission.

    Class of 2012, here I come!

    I'm applying for 2008 also... waiting to submit once I get my MCAT scores, which I'll get at the end of June, but more importantly, waiting until my PS is finished. Writing my PS feels like the hardest thing on earth right now!

    HA! I *wish* I was on top of things like you are... Transcripts are in, recs are in, MCAT scores come in June 27th,... But my personal statement is such a struggle right now. I have most of the basic ideas written down, but it sounds like 10th grade English, and I'm a perfectionist, so... it'll be a while.

    Hoping to submit by June 30th and maybe give myself a July 4th extension if necessary. *maybe*

    My friends, wutwinb is the model URM applicant right now. I have no idea what her stats are, but when she applies, regardless of her stats (to a certain extent) she will get a ton an interviews. This is the big secret; if you apply and are complete this early, this process is MUCH MUCH less of a crapshoot than if you are complete in October. I know its hard to get stuff done, but I encourage everyone to save their time, money, and sleepless nights by simply applying early, giving themselves a peace of mind.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new here but it's great to see such a strong community. I just submitted by AMCAS (although I'm still waiting for 1 transcript to be received) and working on the few secondaries that are already posted.

    Good luck to everyone! I'm sure I'll be talking to you all very soon :)

    Good work QTCL13. Make sure that your turn around time for the secondaries is no longer than 2 weeks. This is prevent you from procrastination, which is so easy to do with those dreadful things.

    hey

    What is early??

    I have submitted my application to both AMCAS and AACOMAS...AACOMAS posted that they received my transcripts...but AMCAS still has not...they were sent on the same day...how long does it take for AMCAS to acknowledge and verify transcripts...and am I still considered early??

    Mel:)

    When I applied, I submitted my AMCAS app like June 15, and it took my app 3 1/2 to get verified. My friend submitted hers on June 22, and it took her 5 weeks to get verified. It all depends on when the rush of received transcripts and submitted AMCAS apps begins. If you are caught in the middle, it can take up to 5 weeks. But if you have yours in my now and are just waiting for verification, you are certainly doing alright and are pretty early.

    Might be an "auto invite" but it's an invite so congratulations! It's one step closer to your goal. Pittsburgh is an interesting town with some nice areas; hope you enjoy winters. :eek:

    My guess is that none of your LORs are going to say that you are an "axe murderer" so your invite is far from automatic. Congratulations!

    The games have begun. Much luck and good vibes to those who enter the ring this year!

    Congrats on Pitt! From my experience last cycle, Pitt tends to have a very fast interview turn around. Both my friend and I got the invites the day after we submitted our secondaries, which was in early Nov. I believe it says in the MSAR that Pitt pre screens, so they may narrow down who they want to send secondaries to, but in any case, congrats on the interview!

    i haven't received howard's either, don't think anyone has. from lasts year's posts, it looks like howard's secondary doesn't have any essays, so hopefully it won't take too long to do.
