I have a feeling many of you who are applying to medical school this cycle are having a minor (perhaps major) freak out because AMCAS opens tomorrow. You have likely been told that applying "early" makes a different in medical school admissions. It does. But be careful - turning in a rushed application the day AMCAS opens is MUCH worse then turning in a stellar application in a few weeks. In general, turning in your AMCAS by mid June is just fine. And if it's late June and your application is awesome, that is probably ok to. I'll tell you a secret - I applied July 1 and got into many top-10 schools including Harvard (where I attended). So please don't freak out. Focus your energy instead of creating a compelling application. If you are struggling, there are lots of resources available to you at a range of price points:
