    HI guys. I was just wondering when I should request for my transcripts to be sent. I plan to submit my dental application in the end of June so I was wondering if I should sent the transcripts before or at the same time. Does anyone know? Oh yeah, this question applies to the letters of Rec also.

    Juan,

    send in your LOR and transcripts when you apply. I still haven't sent in my transcripts and LOR's since it hasn't been 14 business days since I applied. I guess it takes them ~14 business days 3 or so weeks to get your account/file ready. If you send in the stuff early then it may get misplaced. Hope this helps.

    oh no! Someone told me to just go ahead and have them sent in even though my app won't be done for a couple of weeks! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" /> :( :confused:

    Seema,

    Don't worry. It doesn't matter if you send it in early as long as it isn't really early like four months. June is probably so hectic for them already since they are getting ready for the new year. I think they will just put your stuff aside until your application comes in. Relax.

    The advise I gave to Juan was coming from my several phone calls to AADSAS. They told me that it takes about 14 business days for your application file to be processed and about a week to get your app delievered to the schools. So the average 4-6 weeks. Don't fret, they also have InfoSource this year and that may help you know faster if they misplaced anything.
