It's late but not hopeless. My roommate from college just applied last year. His primary got verified 9/27 and he was basically getting interviewed for waitlist positions. He ended up getting off the waitlist for UCSF and he just started this fall.3.5 cGPA and sGPA. 31 MCAT Florida resident. Is it too late to submit my primaries right now?
If OP submits now, the primary will not be verified for another 6+ weeks, so we're looking at the end of October at the earliest. Even with deadlines in Nov and Dec, most schools have given out most of their invites by December, so if you're not complete until mid-November, you are WAY behind the game. And the people they hand out interview invites to who apply that late are rockstars, and OP is not a rockstar by his stats.I agree that the sooner you apply the better. But most ppl on SDN consider you must apply the first day of June to be consider "on time". Most school deadline is not until Nov or Dec. FYI, UAB secondary did not send out until couple days ago (for every applicant). So I cannot say for all school but I do not think it is too late now to apply (UAB at least)
Verification is actually only taking about 10 days right now (they are working on Sep. 8th submissions as we speak), but yeah, really late.If OP submits now, the primary will not be verified for another 6+ weeks, so we're looking at the end of October at the earliest.
If you have already applied to other schools, you might as well add a couple more, as the only thing you will lose is your secondary fees. Just know your chances are lower than if you had added them right away. For the OP, since he/she hasn't applied anywhere yet, they would avoid the re-applicant stigma by NOT applying at all until next year.Sorry to jump on this thread, but I want to add a couple more schools (my primary app was verified in June and is ready to go and I can have the secondaries done by the end of the weekend)...still too late? 3.2/30 URM
