I understand AADSAS generally opens the new application [2012] in early June. Should I wait for summer grades and apply on August 1st, or should I just go ahead and apply early [assuming I'm a weaker candidate].

Hm, what are your stats exactly if you don't mind me asking? Have you taken the DAT yet?

I will be taking the DAT in late January and potentially in May if needed. Practice exams are placing me around 20/21. My recent grades have been high, however due to early college I'm going to be applying around ~3.3cgpa and ~3.25sgpa

I would definitely apply early in June rather than August. You can always update your summer grades during the Academic Update period in November or you can call each school and ask them if you can send your summer transcript directly to their office instead of waiting for the Academic Update.

If you have most of your prereqs done, I would go ahead and apply in June. Only apply in August if you are taking like a full load of prereqs. Good luck on your DAT.
