As per my earlier post, I graduated last year (Biology major) with an overall GPA of 3.51 and a science GPA of 3.33. Unfortunately, my MCAT is 24 (7VR, 9PS, 8BS). But I do have great ECs, LORs, and plenty of research experience. Applied to 18 schools last year, albeit fairly late (August). Even so, I interviewed with 3 schools. Got rejected from 2 and am still waitlisted with the 3rd. Took this past year off to volunteer in Alaska with AIDS patients. Am returning home in August and plan to study like crazy and take the MCAT again when I feel I'm ready, since this seems to be my weakest point. Plan to reapply for 2009 entering year with new MCAT score. HERE'S MY QUESTION: Since I'm losing yet another year to studying and retaking the MCAT anyway, should I go ahead and also try to reapply again now, but this time right on June 1, and see where my current stats might get me? (I figure I have nothing to lose, or do I???) Is there any disadvantage to doing so? Do schools frown on people applying too many times in case I don't make it again and want to reapply a 3rd time with my new MCAT score next year? Will applying on day 1 really make a difference? In other words, will doing so with my current weak MCAT maybe get me further this time than applying late last year with the same score? HELP!!!
