    I will be taking the MCAT summer 2012, but wont apply until Spring 2013. I was wondering if I could apply for the FAP to be used just for the MCAT summer 2012 and then apply again for application fees Spring 2013?

    I don't see any problems with this~

    It's not exactly obligatory to apply after being granted the FAP

    I don't know about the FAP process from personal experience. However, I would assume you can use the FAP multiple times. You might just need to reapply.

    **Everything said above was strictly non-sexual FAP.

    I was on the AAMC website earlier and it said something along the lines of "when your FAP is verified for the calendar year.." I inferred from this statement that you would have to get your income verified every year.

    From what I understand most people don't use the FAP more then 3 times per session.

    i fapped for my mcat. i do not recommend.

    EDIT (w/ legitimate response): Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe a FAP designation is valid only for the calendar year (NOT cycle or academic year) in which it is granted, and you may re-apply in consecutive years. I know of one person who has successfully done what you are proposing.

    How many people that have tried to use it more than three times? I'm guess most just say, "oh not it's impossible, why even try?".

    People who have gotten really desperate have been known to FAP far more then three to four times.

    Is it worth even attempting a third or fourth time? You might be trying your hardest but will your attempts cume to fruition or will you be rejected with nothing but wasted time and energy.

    "The AAMC is now accepting Fee Assistance Program applications for the 2011 calendar year. Applications will be accepted until December 15, 2011."

    The 2012 applications will probably open sometime past Dec 15, 2011.
