Aim for July, not August if you can. Also, will your cGPA be >3.0 by the time you apply? If not I'd only apply to one school, then add the rest when your MCAT score comes in and a retake or course gets you above a 3.0 (to meet a lot of the cutoffs).Hey thank you for the very detailed reply! I dont think I will be able to take the MCAT until July or August at the earliest because of some other issues. I plan on starting to study now, however.
If I apply in early cycle with all of my scores in except for Biochemistry, but I don't get my MCAT in until a bit later, can I still be considered for the school year starting in Fall 2016?
I don't think I will be ready to take the MCAT by Aprill :S
