    Im confused what you mean by invitations. Do you mean invitations to interview when you are applying? If so, yes do well in school, your MCAT, etc.. :)

    are you talking about those annoying brochures like, 'through some unknown mechanism, we know you did pretty good on the MCAT' so you should apply to WashU! or the army ones that are like, 'be a man! be a soldier! (and a doctor, if ur REALLY serious about it...we guess)' yea you pretty much just have to exist to get those.

    You will continue to get those, as well as the army and a few caribbean school offers periodically well after you matriculate at med school. I assume AMCAA sells its address lists.
