Is the eight week wait for verification after both transcripts and application is submitted?

I sent my transcripts about four weeks ago and they’re still waiting on three.

I haven’t yet submitted my application. Am I looking eight weeks out from when I submit the application it or when my transcript were sent out from the school? Or received? Or do they both need to be in and then the eight weeks begin?

What a weird cycle. In any other year submitting in late June would be not weird at all.

Ok. So, I may as well not submit my application until all my transcripts are in?
I don’t think you can submit your application without your transcripts even if you wanted to. Gently roll your mouse over the “submit application” button and if a cancel sign pops up then you can’t submit until your transcripts are delivered.

you can submit without transcripts. There in no advantage if you do that

I called AMCAS earlier today and they said there were separate queues for submission & processing. I've still heard conflicting information from both AAMC & people on SDN/reddit, so I'm not really sure what to think
Yes there are separate queues as they are used for different things.
1) Once your application is marked received, it goes to the submission queue.
2) Once your transcript is checked for being official and is marked received.
3) The transcripts get associated with application and once all expected have been received...
4) They your now complete submitted application goes to processing queue (verification)
