The 2009 medical school admissions season for the allopathic schools is about to begin. According to the AMCAS website, 2010 applications will be available early May. If you have not already begun working on your applications, now is the time to jump start the process. You'll help maximize your admissions chances by doing so.
Remember - it is always advantageous to apply early, whether your application is outstanding or whether it might have a few shortcomings. That's because the best applicants are interviewed first and can get an offer in hand early in the process.
It's especially important for applicants with less-than-perfect profiles to apply early in the admissions cycle. Once enough offers of admission have been given out to fill the class, it becomes even tougher for applicants with some weaknesses to get an interview.
If you do have any preliminary questions, please do let us know.
Best of luck with your medical school applications!
