In a dilemma:
Have my POD app completed and ready to go, however my letter writers said they can't have my letters done until mid/end of this month. I really want to get my app in ASAP...should I wait for the LOR or just send in my apps now anyways? If so, do you know if any POD schools will still interview you or accept you before receiving the LORs or no?
Thanks!

Hello,

If your application is complete, then I encourage you to submit as soon as possible. I have submitted mine on 9/12 to 6 schools while waiting for a DPM to write my letter. I already had my faculty letters ready, but I received interview invites to all 6 schools prior to sending the LORs via interfolio.

In regards to acceptance, I am not sure. I have my first interview at Western 10/9, so hopefully the DPM letter will come through shortly after.

Wish you the best of luck!

Do you know how long it took from the day you submitted to the first interview offer? And okay I'm planning to submit and pay tomorrow then, thanks for the info! :)

~ 1 week. Keep in mind you should submit ASAP to get your grades verified (took ~5 days for me) and then sent to schools of interest.

It took about 10 days for my first II from Temple. Grade verification took less than a week. I agree with Asksport in regards to grade verification. Any discrepancies between transcripts and your input of grades could potentially delay your verification. So far, everything has been smooth and hopefully the interviews will be too (*crosses fingers*). I hope your application experience will run smoothly as well!

I can't remember exactly, but I believe it took up to two weeks from the time my undergrad sent out the transcript to AACPMAS actually notifying me that they received it. Just wait another week and things should start rolling. If you are uncertain, just give them a call. I called them asking about various details and they were very patient and informative.

Thanks! Yeah one of them was received today (exactly 2 weeks after it mailed out) so I'm thinking the 2nd one should be received by this Friday I just have to stay patient lol
