    What does it mean to be "complete?" Does that mean all the letters of rec need to be sent in to colleges to be complete? Additionally, do I need an mcat score to be complete? When do med schools start looking at apps? Thank you for the advice!

    Sincerely,
    An EXTREMELY worried applicant

    to be complete at a school means that they have everything they require from you which can/does include: primary from AMCAS (w/ MCAT score), secondary, LORs, that oh so lovely secondary fee. some schools require other things, but what i just listed is the standard. for the most part, schools will not look at your app until you are complete.

    I don't think the OP means complete at a school. I think he's only referring to AMCAS.

    To be complete, I think you need everything filled out and grades verified by transcript. You can submit your AMCAS without MCAT scores and LORs won't be needed until you get secondaries from schools later on.
