    HI, I read a thread about the similiar topic, but I've come to ask for a piece of advice from anyone.

    According to AADSAS school section, it is saying send xx, xx, and xx materials at the same time you send AADSAS material.

    Do you think they are saying we should send other supplemental materials when we get a notification from AADSAS that the materials have been released from AADSAS?

    BTW, I also doubt that all the materials will not be sent to the schools at the same time as there are no reasons to send them separately, even though the materials may be received at different time due to the difference in mailing time.:idea:

    ???

    I got it! Hm...but what about DAT scores and transcripts?

    Sending US check and photo too early may not be recommended as they don't have my information. ---> Can be messed up in theory! HAHA

    What about DAT score and transcripts?

    I think I can send them now!!

    In fact, I think I send all those things now as they will keep it until they can match the materials with "AADSAS" materials.

    I don't believe they will throw them away even though I send all of them now.:) Maybe not???????? :confused:

    Yeah I sent out supplemental materials as soon as I submitted the AADSAS app... I wouldn't wait until AADSAS printouts have been mailed to each school.

    Obviously, they will make a file for you. They won't toss out checks written for them. Geez.

    You can use your AADSAS number instead of SSN, if it makes you more comfortable. Just be sure they know it is your AADSAS number.

    Thanks guys!!

    Yes, I also think it's important to write your AADSAS ID number and name down on the checks, photos, etc.

    Anyway, transcripts and DAT score report will be sent separately out of my hand!!

    Whereas I can send photo, checks and other supplemental things all together in one envelope for each school. :thumbup:

    Each school has their own preference... go to the admissions website for each school that you applied to... instructions for sending supplemental materials and checks are covered in detail.

    Most schools will take either your SSN or AADSAS ID#, but I'd rather get it right the first time instead of having to go through the trouble of tracking down a "lost" check.

    Why would transcripts and official DAT score reports be coming from you and not your academic institution(s) and the ADEA (resp.)? Or am I misunderstanding something about your post?

    I wrote all of my information:
    name, address, phone, ssn, aadsas number on an attached paper and sent it with all of my checks. Many schools required some of the information as well as a 2x2 picture.

    I emailed the admissions head at Michigan and she said that all they want is your name. SSN and AADSAS number aren't required with the check. Im not sure if this is how it is for all schools though.
