Attending Physician
I'm a non-traditional student who has just finished Gen Chem and Calculus and will be attending a post-bac beginning in the fall. I'll be taking one year of O-Chem, Physics and Bio.

The year sequence finishes in mid-May. Would folks recommend my waiting until August to take the MCAT (giving myself time to finish the coursework) or would I be better off taking it in April?

I realize the benefits of the earlier MCAT, I'm just unsure if taking the MCAT before finishing the three courses would more than offset this.

All recommendations/suggestions are appreciated...

I would take an aamc full length (4-7) and see how you do. Then you'll have a better gauge of whether or not you should put it off.
