Your application will be sent to these additional programs in the next weekly mailing.
A: You can still apply to this program as early as you would like. Once your application, fee payment and all required documents are received, your application will be processed and sent to this program. The application is not binding and your may continue to apply to as many additional PTCAS programs as you would like at any time prior to a program's application deadline.
A: It depends on the requirements of the program. If the GRE is required by the program, Early Decision candidates MUST take the GRE and request scores by no later than July 31. If you do not request or take the GRE by July 31, you should apply to the program as a regular applicant (rather than as an Early Decision candidate).

A: Yes. All admissions decisions on Early Decision candidates must be made by September 24, 2012. This will give applicants who are denied admission or deferred to regular applicant status time to apply to additional PT programs prior to the first regular deadline on October 1.
