Does anyone know when secondaries are normally due for schools? I am taking the August MCAT and doubt I will be able to complete mine until after I take thus I have yet to submit my completed AMCAS. I don't have a previous score. Any ideas on what the best way to proceed in this situation is?

Secondary due dates vary, but they seem to be in the winter (December 1st...) Some schools give you a month from when you get the secondary (Rush, Loyola), I'm sure you'll have time to submit them after the MCAT, but a lot of the questions and secondaries are posted here, so you could submit before your MCAT so as soon as your score is in they can review your application

Some schools expect you to have them in a couple weeks after you submit.

You won't be reviewed until your score comes in anyway, but you definitely want to have LORs and secondaries in and ready for review before then.
