SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) As the title of the thread says, I'll be taking the MCAT around mid-June to give myself enough time to get scores back and sent in so my applications won't be looked at too late in the game. I will probably apply to a couple MD schools (UNC and Wake Forest) and 8 or 9 DO schools. So, from others who have been in a similar situation or are knowledgeable enough to give me an informed opinion, when would be the best time for me to send in my applications? I was thinking about just sending in 1 application before I get my MCAT score back, and if the score is competitive, I will proceed to send in the rest (although I'm not sure how secondaries come into this--will they be sent in soon after I send in the primaries in my situation?) to ensure that I don't waste hundreds of $. Appreciate it.
