Here are some quick FAQs, around deadlines:
Can I apply to a site (or sites) after the deadline?
Sure! However, the common practice will be that your application will be considered after all of those received prior to deadline have been reviewed. Check with local sites to see their specific policy. Here are a few more deadline-related Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I change my “Primary” site even after I submitted it?
Yes, you can. Just go back into your application and re-save it with the new sites you’d like to select.
What happens if I apply to multiple sites, and my “Primary” site doesn’t want to pursue my application?
Then your application is up for consideration by the other sites (a.k.a. the “Secondary Sites.”) However, you will be considered like a “free agent” (in sports terms) — which means you could advance in multiple selection processes. It’s up to you to determine whether or not you want to interview with multiple sites.
