    I do know some programs will mark you application as "complete" after the minimum required letters arrive, and may subsequently begin review of your file for interview at that point. However, any LOR's that come in afterwards will still be added to your file.

      Does it confer any advantages? Let's say another applicant submitted their secondary after yours and both you and them submitted LORs at the same time, after submitting secondaries. Who's application would be reviewed first?

        I think it depends on who was complete first AND how the school reviews each applicant. So some people get preference early (exceptional stats, legacy, etc) no matter what, and then the school may sort the rest chronologically or through some other method.

        Basically, I THINK it is school specific but I am a premed so perhaps adcoms advice is better here.
