You are definitely behind as far as SDNers are concerned, but if your application is strong, you should be OK. There are still all the August MCATers whose apps aren't complete yet either. I took the August MCAT last year, which meant none of my files (I applied to 23 schools) were complete until the end of October at the earliest. I got 13 interview invites, 5 acceptances and 6 waitlists. I would get it in ASAP. Writing the experiences isn't that hard. Just say clearly what you did -- they're not supposed to be little mini-essays, just information. And send your transcript(s) to AMCAS now! Good luck!! :)

Your stats are almost exactly the same as mine were. Your GPA is actually slightly higher.

Earlier tends to be better, but by all means, apply ASAP! :)

You still have time, but you should hurry. Interview season still runs for a while.

you still have time, but if you 'slaved all summer' over the essay be aware you will have more essays to write for the secondaries (and I thought they were harder than the AMCAS one!)..... so don't spend as long doing them and you'll be fine!

Not to scare you, but I submitted AMCAS on 8/20 and I am still not verified (thay have had my transcripts since 7-15). :( The lag time may be a while.
