August is the main month Prepare the IMG friendly lists/Gather the Programs u like,Prepare Personal statement,Prepare CV add colours and essenses to it...

Dont Submit CAF ("Common application form" until u feel its complete) -'coz once u submit it it's locked...And it reflects ur Entire Qualifications,etc.,

Apply to Programs u like On the Night of August31-2008 after 12PM

And assign LOR's to atleast one programs 'coz they wont appear even If they r scanned unless they were assigned...

And from there to see the time line go to my blog..

Mean while dont forget to apply for Observerships/Externships 'coz they take long time to get a chance and they r a plus to ur CV..

I hope Most of u are already in the Middle of this path...And GL to all of u !
