    I submitted my app in July 24th. It in all likelyhood will not be verified and sent out till mid August at the earliest. Am I still in the early range? I tried searching on here, but most of the posts said that June was early.

    I am just trying to get a range of dates :)

    Thanks much in advance!

    I hope to submit mine in the next week...and don't even take the MCAT for another 3..so if that's late...I guess it's late..

    I wanted to apply this cycle to see if I could get in anywhere...if not, have to do it all over again...but I'll take my chances this year.

    I'm pretty much in the same boat as you, I submitted mine on july 15th. I'm also hoping that it's still considered early. I think we should be fine. think of all the people who are taking the august MCAT.

    I consider anything before October "early". I didnt submit until November and my secondaries were not sent until December.
    I bet less than 6.2% of applicants have submitted as of this point. Probably 50-60% are waiting to take the august MCAT and most people underestimate the time it takes to put together an application.

    My idea of early is giving yourself a chance to get interviews and an acceptance before the end December. You should submit to AACOMAS before the end of August. New Year's Eve will never feel so good!

    thanks guys, this is refreshing for me to read. I have been freakin' out since I was thinking two months behind the June 1st pack was a terrible terrible thing. I'm still waiting on AACOMAS to finish calculating my GPA then it will be sent out.
