    many of you on this forum have stressed the importance of applying early. Since I am taking the mcat this august, and it takes 2 months to get the results; should i just apply early and hope i get a decent score on the mcats or wait until i get my results?

    apply EARLY. it takes time to transfer/verify your transcript. you should also give yourself time if something does not go right during your application process. again, apply EARLY and good luuck.

    should be alright based on the following timeline:

    sending transcript and amcas application -> mid june
    arrival of your transcript -> july
    taking mcat -> mid august
    verification of your amcas application and transcript (6+ wks) -> sep
    working on your sec. apps -> early sep to nov
    mcat score available -> mid oct

    you should be alright. good luck.
