can transcripts be sent to schools earlier than submission of the initial application? I know it takes at least a couple of wks for transcripts to be received, and since I don't have enough time to work on my PS and other parts of the application until next month, i want to know if I can send in transcripts now, before I send in the app. If so, is there a way to make it known to the school, so that my transcripts don't get thrown away?

No, don't send your transcripts directly to the schools until and unless they ask you for them. You can send them to AMCAS any time after the beginning of May. Open your account whenever they let you (first week of May) and then submit all transcripts to AMCAS with your AMCAS number on them. Don't forget the AMCAS number, or your transcripts will disappear into a mysterious black hole and wind up in the files of someone in Timbuktu. ;)
