Hey everyone, I just started a grad program at the start of the summer, but I am still applying this round. I have not yet applied because I am re-taking the MCAT in August, but I just met with the pre-med advisor at my school and he was discouraging me from applying this round. He said programs tend to "shy away" from students who have just started a masters because they don't want to pull them away from the program. Is this true? He also acted like I'm crazy for applying this late, and kinda turned his nose up at me for trying. My stats really aren't bad as long as I do okay on the MCAT next month, so I'm just wondering if him telling me all this was justified. I'd love to hear y'all's opinions. Thanks.
