    Hey guys, i was wondering whether I should submit my application soon. I took the MCAT July 16th of this year (this summer), and was wondering if I should wait till my score comes in before I send out my application. What is the difference between sending out the application before and after the MCAT score comes out. Should I only apply to my lower end schools first? my GPA is a 3.9 and I have a lot of volunteer experience in India and Africa; if that information helps. Thanks for the help guys.

    Submit ASAP if you think your MCAT scores are going to be decent. To be safe... indicate a retest date on your application. Which you can always change/update after you've been verified. Get the ball rolling!

    Good luck! :luck:

    Send it ASAP.

    The difference between submitting it now and submitting when your scores come out is the difference between being complete in August/September and being complete in October.

    Try like 5 or 6...just in case your MCAT scores aren't what you expect.
