Due to the large number and competitive nature of the application, we recommend that all application materials be completed early in the application cycle. We cannot guarantee that applications will be considered complete and ready for review if they are submitted through AMCAS late in the application cycle.

Please remember that it takes AMCAS 4-6 weeks to verify each application before the school can see it.
