I'm a fourth year undergrad applicant applying with a 3.99 GPA and very similar sGPA (3.96 or something like that). I have a 524 MCAT. I would rate my extracurriculars as about average/standard, although I participated in a unique study abroad program in South America with clinical observation opportunities. I have 260 clinical volunteer hours and 400 hours of non-clinical community service.

I was verified on 8/3 and started receiving secondaries, but the problem is, I have only turned in 7 out of 27 secondaries at this point. I am trying to do them as fast as I can without losing quality and getting less than 4 hours of sleep a night (I'm also in classes right now). I don't know if I should just give up on some of the schools if it's been almost month? I don't know if my good stats will help counteract the lateness?

Advice much appreciated!
