    Late MCAT

    Hi, I haven't taken my mcat and am only a research rotation away from graduating. I want to get into med school quickly as I'm 28 y/o and don't want to waste any more time. Would being able to take a Late August or September MCAT still be able to get me into the cycle for MD/DO schools? If I...

    Hi, I am worried that I have applied too late and have shot myself in the foot! I submitted primary on August 24th so it is still being waiting for review to be verified, and so haven't received any secondaries yet.

    Is it worth it to apply this cycle?

    So while I was conflicted about whether or not to apply this cycle, one of my mentors has convinced me to apply. The problem is, I don't know how much this will hurt my cycle chances. I submitted my primary app on July 12th, and my transcript, LOR, MCAT are all good to go. However, I'm worried...

    Should I take another gap year before applying?

    Hi this is my first time posting here. I struggled with writing my PS and took 2 months to write it and now I have it done but I think it's below average(if you can take a look at it that would be great). And I think it is kinda late to apply at this time. I am also a non-canadian international...

    Move up from MCAT from May 23 date? (conflicting information)

    I am scheduled to take the MCAT May 23, score release on June 25.

    Is being complete mid/late August too late?

    I'm thinking of adding a few schools to my list (Vanderbilt, Duke, Baylor, USC Keck, WUSTL, etc.). Is being complete mid-late August still okay for someone who is LM 81, or is it too late to bother?

    2nd time reapplying...apply now or wait??

Since then I started an MPH program and I have decided to reapply to Optometry school. I'm getting tutoring now and I plan...

    Updating MCAT score before or after submitting secondaries?

    Hey guys, So I sent in my primary application on June 1st to bunch of schools that are more or less within my score range (GPA 3.65 and MCAT 506). The thing is I'm currently studying for the MCAT to take it a second time and hope to get at l least a 515. I'm probably going to re-take it first...

    I'm taking the MCAT on June 30th and won't get my results until the end of July. The earliest I think I can get my application in is by mid-august assuming everything else works out.

    Is app submission post-June 1or post-start of school's app review "late?"

    In short, what I'm asking is whether there is an effective disadvantage to taking MCAT May 19 (considered reschedule-to; results June 19) vs. April 21 (currently scheduled; results May 22) in terms of it being a late application. While submitting after June 1 is obviously late relative to...

    Apply now vs. wait for one last post-bac grade

    Hi all, Should I apply now without this last grade (with an sGPA of 3.36) to make sure I'm on the early side, but exclude this final grade from my sGPA? Or, should I wait it out and hope I get my new transcript processed by the end of June and submit by 6/30? Any advice is sincerely appreciated!

    MD Late application for 2017-2018 vs. 2018-2019 cycle

    Hi, I will be graduating this upcoming June and am deciding whether to apply for the 2017-2018 or 2018-2019 cycle. I won't be taking my MCAT until September 10th and therefore won't receive my score until a month after. Do you think it reduces my chances to apply the 2017-2018 cycle but submit...
