Hey everyone! I am interested in applying to podiatry school for the 2017 year. I have yet to take the MCAT, and am not planning on taking it until after the fall semester since I am taking a few science classes that will be covered on the MCAT (biochem, cell bio, and genetics) during that time . With that said, I know the application cycle opens in August and begins getting full around April or so (I may be wrong, that was just my understanding). For that reason, I am planning on taking the MCAT around January since I have yet to start studying for the MCAT. My overall GPA is a 3.82 and my science GPA is about a 3.6, as of this moment lol...still have a couple hard courses to go. I won't be done with the prereqs for podiatry school until the spring (I will be taking orgo 1 lab and physics 2/lab). My question for you is when do you think is the best time I apply, and/or do you suggest me changing my fall schedule to be more fit for my application? I read I am able to apply when those classes are in progress, so I was thinking possibly January? Thank you so much for your time, I really appreciate it! I just want to make sure I'm on the right track with everything, and if you have any other suggestions, that would be great!! Good luck with everything.
