It has been a while since I have been actively posting due to computer distasters. I hope all my fellow MSTP applicants are doing well. I am happy to see many of you have interviews. I need a little advice from anyone who is willing to help out. After my April MCAT foul-up, I was a bit discouraged. I re-took in August and feel like a nailed the verbal. I submitted AMCAS a little late (mid-august) and I am hearing that AAMC verification lag time is growing exponentially. I applied to 17 MD/PhD programs. Do you all think I should submit online secondaries/MSTP apps to schools such as Yale and Wash U before they get my AMCAS app? Also, is it kosher to submit LORs to my schools before they have my AMCAS? I feel like a strong applicant, but I know that I am at a disadvantage because I applied late. Your words of wisdom are appreciated. Isid PS: Happy belated birthday Jot!!
