    So When Should I be Getting Interview Invites?

    So here's the deal. I applied to 15 schools and completed secondaries for 9 of them by the end of August. Now it's October 1 and I've only gotten one interview. When should I be freaking out? Some people say end of October, others say to stick it out until April. What's everyone's opinion?

    Is there any benefit to taking the MCAT in certain months ?

    Is an August DAT test date considered late?

    Sorry to be neurotic. It's that time of year, again. This question may be more appropriate for the DAT sub-forum, but I figured I'd cast a wider net of responses in this busier pool. I've been searching meticulously through past threads for reassurance that it's okay, and the majority of...
