If I start now, transcript mailing and verification should take 6-7 weeks. It will be close to mid Oct for me to submit my application. Will it be too late for DO programs? I know MSUCOM urges serious applicants to submit by early Sept. And most programs want to fill in their class by December. My profile: immigrant with permanent resident card , ESL; DIY postbac premed @ CC GPA 4.0; MCAT 33 (Verbal =8); advanced degree, decent community and hospital volunteering experience,rich research experience, have shadowed 3 M.D. so far. Any suggestions are welcome!
