Applying Early to Medical School

Why is it important to apply early to medical school?

There are several reasons but here are the Top 2 reasons to apply early.

  1. Most medical schools accept students on a rolling basis so applying early allows for you to get your application in when there is more spots available increasing your chances of getting in.
  2. It gives you more time to work on secondaries. (Well sort of). I think it is necessary to submit your secondaries no more then 2 weeks from the time you receive them. But urgency to get them in even faster is very important the later it gets in the application cycle.

    I agree wholeheartedly with this! I had at least one friend who was negatively impacted by applying later in the summer. Rolling admissions/invitations to interview means you’ve got the best shot if you get on their radar early!!
