So you have to have both a strong MCAT and a strong application, include it being early. I will make the same suggestion I make to most people in your situation: consider NOT applying this cycle, figure out why your do poorly on the MCAT, spend the next year overcoming whatever issue that may b, prep your butt for te MCAT, add to your app in other ways (a class or tow, volunteering, etc) and have a strong, and early app for next season.
I am guessing that you are still in your 20's and I will say that you spend the rest of life doing medicine another 30 years or more, so waiting another year will not make a difference. So is your goal to get into medical school or to get into medical school quickly?
I understand what you are saying and will take it into consideration. And yes, I will be 27 this year. Thanks.
