How many do you have done or in the process of submitting? I have 11 in my posession and finished about half. Just waiting for stupid verification. Luckily I have my SDN bros and sisters to help provide secondary resources

braluk said:call the school and ask. some you can submit early (like GW) others do not want you to send it before the primary arrives (AECOM)
braluk said:oh no send everything as soon as you can. lor's are automatically uploaded online to an online courier anyway (alot of schools do this idk about wash u tho), and then once they are available, adcoms just pull the recs off the courier anyway. send eveyrthing as early as you can, dont wait til its all togehter.
MasterMD said:i've been doing one or two secondaries a day. am i being too quick.. i mean how long should a typical secondary take? maybe im not doing a good enough job? when i get one i usually have it done by the following evening.. but i'm not really doing much else (two classes and volunteering). i feel like maybe im going to get a lot of post-secondary rejections due to not spending a bunch of time on them. how long on average are ppl spending on these?
braluk said:WOAH that is late. did you ask him late in the year or did you forget to remind him? I mean september isnt late, but seeing that you have your applciation ready now, it would be a real shame to waste an early application submission because of one late prof. Are you taking an August MCAT? If you are, then thats not so bad, because your app wont be reviewed until October anyways. But September 10th seems late given that you are ready to submit your stuff now. You dont have a committee composite letter?
braluk said:lol you have spectular stats. dont worry. you're not really that late at all. you might be lumped in with the majority of applicants (most of which dont use SDN or at least people who dont pay attention to the craze of the early submission ) if you send in your secondaries now, you really wont be late at all, and all that will be left will be a simple rec that they can add to your file in september to be finished and ready for review. Sending later will just take longer to process since they have to wait til the check clears, then process, notify, put into the system, file away, etc, etc etc..
either that or getting a death sentence. In many respects, its all verisimilitude anywaysMiesVanDerMom said:11 down 4 to go. I turn them in a few hours after getting them. At this point, the essays really can be recycled pretty easily, even if the questions aren't exactly the same. I'm beginning to worry maybe I shouildn't be turning them in quite so quickly, but when the writing flows, it flows. I've been lucky to have a nice stream of inspiration lately. Or I'm delusional and my essays don't make sense at all. Last night I told U of Maryland that entering a profession was like getting married. I'm sure it is...
yeah, but those friends are gonna regret itMasterMD said:yeah its funny.. i have a bunch of friends who are like going to submit amcas later this month and then another few who are still working on personal statements.... SDN is nutso!!
