    I dont know what I should do. I got a 20 on my April MCAT. I have a 3.31 GPA and a 3.25 science GPA. I dont know if i should wait till around october to apply when I get my scores back from my august exam. Or do I apply now? I just dont want to be rejected everywhere and not even get the chance of showing them my new mcat scores which hopefully will rock.

    If you apply now, you'll have the opportunity to let the schools know that you have new scores coming in from the August exam.

    It's always better to apply as early as possible and have your files completed early so that you're one of the first people interviewed. I believe, although this is my opinion, that the later you interview, the higher your chances of getting waitlisted, even with really good credentials.

    If you interview with 200 seats open, you have a much better chance than if you interview with 10 seats available. That's what I was told by one of my interviewers at NSU, much to my chagrin. :)

    APPLY NOW

    There should be a place on the application that asks you if you are taking it again.

    When I filled out AACOMAS directly beneath where I entered my MCAT scores, it asked me if I was taking them again.

    Look again at the application. If you still cannot find it, call AACOMAS directly and found out what's going on. (try to talk to Robert Ruiz...he is the man)
