Hi, I'm taking summer classes right now, and I'm planning to start my application first thing in August. Is this a good idea? Would it put me at a disadvantage, since they look at applications in the order they were received? What if they accept too many people before they see my application? Also, how exactly does the application process work? I haven't applied to any schools yet. I'm almost done filling out all my information for AMCAS, but I haven't really started applications yet. Do you have to request the application for each school? Does it take 4-6 weeks for the AMCAS info to go through, and then another 2 weeks to receive an application from the school? Sorry I'm new to this and a bit confused.
