Students hoping to begin medical school in the fall of 2011 should be working on thier applications now. For DO programs the site is https://aacomas.aacom.org/, for MD programs the site is http://www.aamc.org/students/amcas/start.htm. These applications are complex and take a lot of time but it is also important to get the applications in early. Most medical schools work on what is called a rotating admissions plan. These plans favor applicants that apply early in the admissions cycle. For this reason DO NOT PUT OFF APPLYING UNTIL THE DUE DATE! APPLY NOW! This process is not like a college assignment where the most important date is the due date. In this system the most important date is the first date that you are allowed to get into the pool.
