The lack of posts last week can be attributed to taking the time to respond to the flood of e-mails in my inbox. Medical school applications can officially be submitted June 3rd of this week, and it seems as if everyone is freaking out accordingly.
My main advice is to stand back, take a breath, and relax! I have been in your shoes, and I know how stressful it is applying to medical school. While applications can be submitted this week, they won’t be transmitted to individual schools until the end of the month. In other words, there is absolutely no need to rush to get everything submitted on the very first day. Don’t be afraid to take a few days to look over your application and tweak it in any way you need to.
If there is any part of the process that you need a bit of advice about, don’t be afraid to contact me. I do answer every e-mail, and I try to as quickly as possible. I will also be putting together some posts in the next few days to further clarify a few things that I get asked about often. This week will probably be the best time to contact me, so if you have any questions, shoot me an e-mail or comment below.
Thank you for this! I'm stressing out as all my friends and SDN members keep emphasizing they are submitting on the first day. I should definitely breathe a littleReplyDelete
Yes, breathe! The most important thing is to have your transcripts in, that way when you do submit you can get verified right away. Whether you submit on the first or the 7th day, I can guarantee that your app will be released in the first batch if everything else has been received. Best of luck to you!Delete
