Hehe...I just got an interview rejection the other day!jlee9531 said:you shouldnt be hurt too much at non-rolling schools, but might get backlogged at rolling ones...
I disagree...i think applying late is a problem regardless.derf said:if you get a 34+ MCAT, taking august should pose NO problem whatsoever. Its only when you score around 28-32 that the august test can hurt you. good luck!

Ozymandsss said:I took the August MCAT last year. I ended up getting into four schools, including my top choice, but a) I really rocked the MCAT (though my GPA is only around 3.3) and b) I wanted to jump out a window from the stress of late interviews all year. Doing the August/Same year thing is not something I would recommend to anyone because it was really stressful, but in the end, it works out. Just make sure you do your AMCAS and your secondary apps like a madman. Submit AMCAS during the first week you are able to and fire off a few secondaries before the MCAT. Take two days or so after the MCAT to recuperate and then go to town on the rest of your secondaries. If you take the August MCAT, you already have that going against you, so don't give them any other reasons to not look at your file such as sending apps in late or slopily done.
