    I applied early, so I'm verified with letters and scores, but I'm considering adding a few schools after perusing MSAR/because I'm neurotic about maximizing my chances. Is it too late to do now? How about for adding reach schools, probably should do this earlier if it's a reach correct?

    I don't think it's too late. Being early helps out, but I don't think you're at the point that there won't be available seats by the time your app is reviewed.

    I think you're fine. You wont be especially early but if you add them now, you could probably be complete at all of them near the end of august, which would put you on time. I know some people at my undergrad who just submitted their AMCAS like a week or so ago. Just do it as soon as possible

    Totally fine! For reference, I've gotten into schools that I added in September, well after submitting the primary in June.
