I understand how applicants would be at a disadvantage if they took the August MCAT, but I have another question. What about the people who also took the April MCAT, submitted their applications on a timely basis, but also took the August MCAT for obvious reasons. Are they thrown into this "August pile" along with the others who didn't take the test in April? Is your application still in the order that it is received or does it continually get passed on while they interview those who only took it in April? I never even considered this. I figured that I wouldn't be at a disadvantage if I took the August test as long as I took the April.
