the premed committee in my school will not send out my committee packets until August 16th. I know a lot of people are rushing to send out there secondaries already, so will this late date hurt me?

That wont hurt that much...August 16th is not that far away...you are still light years of most people applying and are taking the August MCAT.

You might just be late in the first round (or in the early second round) of completed applications

No. Relax. You will still be file complete way ahead of the August MCAT'ers. There is nothing you can do about your committee anyway, so focus on writing good secondaries. At least you know you have more time now. :)

It actually shouldn't hurt you very much. Just make sure all your secondaries are in by then so that when your committee packet arrives you are all set to go.
