If you take on June 13 you will get scores on July 15, and if you submit on July 15 you will be verified by ~Aug 18 or so and that is when schools will get your primary. You should use the time between June 13 and July 15 to fill out AMCAS and get your LORs so you have them ready.

submit as soon as you can, in june.then youll be verified by the time you get your mcat scores.amcas will send your primaries to schools without your mcat score and will just update the schools once amcas recieves your mcat scores. i got alot of secondaries last year b4 even recieving my mcat scores.

yea but if you submit the amcas without the MCAT, I have a feeling that schools might put your application on the back burner, and not review it until later. Is this true? I'm taking the MCAT on May 27th, and am still unsure of whether or not to submit the amcas without the MCAT score.

no because once my mcat scores were received,i got multiple emails right away (within a day) saying that my app was complete and that they had just recieved my score. i think some of you are thinking too much into this.but do what you wanna do.

I agree with the postings above that advocate a June submission of the AMCAS. By doing this, it increases the chances, I believe, of getting an interview than if you wait to submit in July. Most schools are rolling so you want to do whatever you can in your power to get yourself looked very early on in the admissions cycle. Good luck with everything!!
