    I submitted my AMCAS on July 1, and my transcripts didn't all arive until ~July 17. This seems to put me a bit behind most here at SDN, but I'm betting it puts me ahead of many many others. Two questions:
    1. What is "early" and "late" considering all pre-meds (not just all of us neurotic SNDers)

    and

    2. What is the effect of being "early" or "late". Does this make any difference in terms of accept rates?

    Note that I'm talking about BOTH getting AMCAS in "early" or "late" and the secondaries.

    it's not the end of the world.
    and of course it depends on how off the timing is.
    if you submit your AMCAS during the last week of july, as opposed to the third week of july, will it make a difference?
    probably not that much.
    but if you send it in at the end of September, then, yea, it will matter.

    in this complicated game of admissions, why risk anything?
    timing isn't everything but just get things in as soon as possible.
    there are a ton of other factors that will work against you, that are out of your control.
    so just get the timing fast.
    it's not impossible.
