I am in the process of planning my classes for the first semester of my B.S. Biology program to commence in spring '09. I will be taking a full course load in the summers as well as the rest of the year which will allow me to complete my B.S. in 2 years + 1 semester. This will include opportunities for research, hospital and volunteer internships that I plan to pursue vigorously. My understanding is that the MCAT is traditionally taken in the spring of one's junior year and that medical school is applied to in the fall of one's senior year. I will be obtaining my B.S. at an accelerated rate, outside of the traditional 4 year curriculum, so when should I take my MCAT and when should I apply to medical school? Thanks in advance for your input!
