I've joined the ranks of the August MCATers...
In the long run, I know it's the best decision for me...
Although I am putting myself, as an applicant, in a dangerous position by taking the exam in August...

Nevertheless, I am at peace with my decision..

i can't waste the money so i'm going to go ahead and take the april mcat, apply in june with whatever i have, and then retake in august no matter what. and if i don't get in then i'll retake in april and reapply next year. i hate the cycle but what else am i going to do? Live? I'd already be doing that...so why not try until the very end? that's my view on it

I wouldn't feel bad about the decision you made. It's better to do well on the mcat than having the application in early with a sucky score.
If you have the entire summer to study, then you'll have all the time in the world to correct the mistakes you were making and learn all the materials not only once, but maybe twice!
Good luck!

I think you can get a 100 dollar or so refund, but I'm pretty sure you can't apply the whole fee from the april to august test.
