Why is it important to apply early to medical school?
There are several reasons but here are the Top 2 reasons to apply early.
- 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.
- 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.
