    Places I screwed myself over, where I wish I'd known more about the application process before hand:

    1. Every course you take, ever, counts. Therefore you can graduate summa cum laude from your undergrad, yet have a GPA below 3.8. I took a lot of upper-div math courses in high school, not thinking they'd affect my future. They dropped my AMCAS GPA by about 0.15 points!

    2. You'll hear from everyone to submit your primary/secondaries ridiculously early. If you're only going to listen to one piece of advice, listen to this one.
