    Hey guys, I sent my primary app to two schools (ACOM, MUCOM) and i simply did not have enough time or resources as I thought I would to submit my secondaries to them before December. I figured that since it was past thanksgiving, I shouldn't even bother since my stats for DO are average and a late app would not get any love from those schools.

    My question is that, if I reapply to these schools a second time with the same MCAT/gpa but super early (june/july latest) and actually finish their secondaries, would I have a worse shot at getting an II than If i were to submit my secondaries now even though its "too late"? The deadlines for them are march first so I could technically still submit to them but i'm thinking it might me better to hold off and just save the material i wrote for the next cycle.

    I will have some minor app improvements by my reapplication on top of applying super early (vs the last cycle which I applied in november) so it's not like I will be applying with the exact same app.

    EDIT: these were not the only two schools i applied to, they are two schools i didnt have time to complete secondaries for

    Nope.

    The hype on SDN against reapplicants is well, mostly hype.

    Thank you goro, I am very glad to hear this. That being said, should I hold off on submitting the secondaries for this cycle and save the material for next cycle?
