This news will either seem abstract or throw a lump in your stomach: most AMCAS portal deadlines are only about 5 months away. But the portal opens on June 1st, with the early decision deadline falling only two months later. If you excel with last-minute deadlines, you might think, “No problem!” But remember: you’re not the only one working on this application. We can almost guarantee that the people writing your recommendations won’t appreciate a day’s notice before they’re due. In fact, they probably need to write quite a few of them – so if you ask them now, you’ll be much more likely to get a thorough response and appreciation for you respecting their time.
And while we don’t recommend waiting until the last day or two to write or revise your essay, we know life happens. Get a regular service in the next month or so while you still have plenty of time to spare, or take advantage of our last-minute rush and blitz editing services to make sure you submit before the portal closes.
Make a timeline now of exactly what goes into your application, with personal deadlines to complete content well before the official deadlines arise. Make it easy on yourself!
We’ll be here each step of the way to make sure your application is as polished as possible, right on time.
