I am not applying to medical school until next year (likely), but I have some extra time this summer and this is what I am trying to do: 1. Complete AMCAS and save it 2. Complete a few secondaries at my top choices Is it possible to complete AMCAS without paying any fees or applying this season? I don't want any information to be released to schools, so I am assuming that if I don't list any schools, I won't be viewed as a reapplicant when I finally do apply. Also, is there a way to obtain paper secondaries without having to apply to a school? I know that there is a thread that lists some of the essay questions, but I want to look at the full application to have a better idea about what the schools I want to get in consider to be important. If there is a paper AMCAS form with fillable fields, I could do that instead of doing it online. I probably should call AMCAS and some schools, but before asking them any unusual questions, I wanted to know if someone has already done what I am trying to do and what he/she did. If you are still wondering why I am doing this, suffice it to say that I am trying to distribute some of the work I have to do next year to this year. I might have to apply to many schools and some of the schools seem to have grueling secondaries (Duke). One more thing: has any of you successfully scheduled an in-person appointment with an adviser from your top medical school to discuss what you can do to become a strong applicant for the school? I am especially talking about the UCs and Stanford, which may be within reach geographically, but not necessarily academically.
