Ok guys...heres the situation: I'm registered to take the July 18th exam, and can say that I still need to prepare extensively. I also need to RETAKE Orgo II, which I am registered for as of now in Summer 1 and have been attending for a week, in which I received a low grade of D due to a lack of focus earlier in my career (which is another story in and of itself, but not an issue anymore). Now the organic 2 course requires me to drive 40 mins from my house each way, as well as devote 2 hrs to a lecture, and than another 2 or so a day to studying at least a chapter a day (the course is accelerated as you all know bc of summer). All in all, the course can be considered a notable distraction from MCAT prep time. W/ the course pushed to summer 2, I would have 24 hrs a day with no job and no classes for the next month and a half to prepare for MCATS in mid-July. What I want to know is, is it worth pushing off the course and potentially doing better on the MCATS and than retaking the course in summer 2 (but having to apply with the D only w/ a promise of retaking the class on my application) or to do both at the same time, apply with the new grade in hand but potentially risk a cpl points in my MCAT score? I'm trying to factor in being able to apply at a decent time with a decent score. Any suggestions as far as application strategies, test scheduling, or more as to how to work around this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
