I posted a similar topic in the pre-allopathic forum, but you guys will probably be more likely to answer my question because many of you are probably in the same boat with me. Basically I'm wondering if those August MCATers who have already sent in their AMCAS applications have any advantage of those that have not? I know that schools process the applications in the order that they are received, but is this true even for applications that do not have MCAT scores? I have kind of been assuming that they basically "put aside" August MCAT applications until the scores are released. If this is true, then it really wouldn't matter if you get your application in 2 months or 2 days before MCAT scores are released. What I was hoping to do was fill out my whole application now and wait to send it in until I see my scores via the online option. If they are ok, then "theoretically" I could send in my app before the scores are "officially released" and be on an equal playing field with all the other August test-takers. Is there any truth to this? If anyone knows about this, I could really use your help. Thanks.
