    If you apply late, expect to be put on the waitlist. I took the August MCAT and every school I interviewed at except one put me on a waitlist. I sent thank yous and a letter saying I was still interested and I ended up getting into every school.

    I sent interest and update letters, as well as an additional letter of recommendation. I definitely think this helped. Good luck!

    It's not a matter of applying late as yigit has kindly shared..... So he's wrong in that part of his response.... it's a matter of when your entire application packet is complete.

    I sent an update/interest letter telling the school they were my top choice (it was true in my case, although I suppose you could just say that :) ).

    If you know of any weak areas of your application, perhaps try to highlight them. For instance, I knew my clinical experience was lacking. So in my letter I described some of the clinical experiences I'd had since my interview.

    I don't know if that helped or not, but I'm sure it's worth a shot.

    Good luck...I'm sure you'll hear something soon!
