The schools I am applying to via SOPHAS have several different due dates, and I was wondering is there was a way to submit to some schools earlier than others?

I have one due Dec 15, and others due in Jan and Feb, and I have been extraordinarily busy lately and will be for the next few wks and haven't gotten to write any of my personal statements yet. I am applying to about 8-10 schools via SOPHAS and it would be nice if I could just work on the ones that are due earliest and first and then do the others later, like over winter break when I have more time.

I found this on the SOPHAS website, and just want to make sure I am understanding it correctly
Q: Do all the schools have the same deadline?

A: No, each school has its own deadlines. You can find these deadlines in the designation section of SOPHAS and in the profiles found at Once you e-Submit your application, you will not be able to make any changes to the majority of the sections, but you will be able to add additional designations if you decide that there are more schools to which you would like to apply. Because you cannot make changes when you add these additional schools, however, your application should be complete to your satisfaction before you e-Submit your first designation(s).
It seems to imply that I can submit at the earliest deadline and then add on schools later- and that all the previous info- transcripts, letters of rec- will still be on file correct? I won't have to resubmit all that stuff again would I?

The way it works is you submit and pay for your first set of schools (or single school) and then all your application information basically gets frozen except for the ability to add more schools and personal statements. As you finish other schools you can add them to your application and pay for them as you go.
