Any one else feel like a weight is lifted every time they hit submit??

Three more down....three that will wait until after I get back from the beach the 24th, and 6 more I'm still waiting to recieve.

How is everyone else doing?:luck:

3 done, 2 on the verge of done, waiting for the rest and 1 that I'm putting off for now..

For me, Stonybrook's essay question really requires some thought.

WHEN do you think is the last date secondaries should be submitted for a good chance to interview?

I'm not sure...when you think about it there are tons of people who don't have the secondaries yet, many who haven't even verified AMCAS, and even more who haven't even taken the MCAT (all you August kids). So when it comes down to it, I think that anything before September is awesome, but I don't think sending them before Sept 1st is the end all be all of your application. I know for a fact people have applied really late and still gotten interviews. Really I think it depends on the school.

But then again, what do I know...I'm just a first time applicant after all.

I submitted 4 of mine today!! Whoo hoo! Only 4 possible secondaries left, and I'm not sure those schools have even started sending them out anyway. At any rate, they will have to wait til the 25th because I will be out of the country and in a place where it's in the 70s and not the 100s!!!!!!!!!!!

I felt like that for a while since I wasn't getting any. Now, I have three (all with essays!) that are waiting for me to complete. Sadly though, I don't really have time until the weekend and then I don't want to do them all weekend.

did anyone send out secondaries before being verified by AMCAS? GW sends out secondary pretty early, but i'm not sure if I should submit secondary since i'm not verified yet.

YAY! Just sent in secondary number 10.....only 7 more to go!

(By the way...My bank account hates me)

It feels really good being more than halfway done.

I've got about 7 secons. I'm working on, and my AMCAS isnt even verified yet. I submitted it on 7/7.. and really wondering what's taking so long given they have both my transcripts already. What does one think about submitting seconds. when the primary isn't verified? I suppose if the schools didn't want them now, they wouldn't have sent out the link... but still...
Anyway... almost 7 down, 17 to go! Yep, I did go a little overboard. :p
