Do schools understand when committees make your app late?

    Say your committee letter didn't get in until mid-August. Are you out of luck getting an interview anywhere if you aren't stat-wise a super saiyan?

    Being complete in mid-August might not be early, but I wouldn't say that it nixes your chances.

    My power levels are below 9000 stat-wise. Good news is I was told I got a positive committee letter. Bad news is it is August.

    Just to refresh on timeline reality:

    AMCAS doesnt start transmitting until July 1st (though some schools have secondaries sent to contact info upon submission to AMCAS)
    Most Primary Apps are verified and transmitted mid July thru late August
    Most adcoms dont start meeting for review until at least mid-August, more likely September (though adcom staff may be doing early reviews).
    Submitting Primary Application June is Early, July Medium, August Late
    Having Primary verified and transmitted to school by end of August is normal speed
    Having Secondary and all LORs complete to school by end of September is normal speed, by end of October is about late.

    Getting primary in early does matter because of all the other items that follow it. But applicants often see the beginning and not understanding how it flows from there.

    Thank you guys for your help! I was a little down that I'd have zero shot because my app wasn't complete until mid-August, now I know it is normalish.
