Something I wish Id read before I started the whole application process. There should be a primer somewhere on what to do and what NOT to do. It might prevent a lot of headaches for next year's applicants. DONT rely on the vmcas site to actually work. Ever. DO get your letters of recommendations in early. DONT try to sort of get all the requirements for many of the schools. Make sure you get all the requirements for a few you want to apply to. DO follow up with schools to make sure theyve received all your application materials. Anyway, those are just a few off the top of my head that were relevant in my own application process. Please add to this list! Maybe when this list is done I'll stick it up somewhere on a website.
