    Ok so I am seriously worried about primary applications, I dont know whether to send it in when I receive my MCAT scores or to send it in June. I am taking the MCAT May 31st which means scores will be sent out a month later correct. So figure July then I send the primary and its processed a month later from what I hear and the secondary applications are sent out a month later after processing the primary so I receive second application in August. Since its rolling admission would it be better to send the primary out in June and the scores will be updated in July so I will receive the secondary applications sooner or will my application be put aside because the MCAT scores are not there? I realize this thread has been posted but no one seemed to respond or really say anything that was backed up by fact. I would really appreciate lots of opinions. Thank You

      Your primary application will not be looked at until your MCAT scores come back.
      That being said, the bottleneck for processing your application is your transcripts. It usually takes the AAMC 3-5 weeks to process them and add them to your application. So just make sure that you send your transcripts a month before your MCAT scores come back. You can work on your primary application while you are waiting for your MCAT scores and in that time the AAMC will be processing your transcripts.
