Hi, I would really like some opinions on this matter. Right now I've just finished my 3rd year in April and entering fourth year in September. I am debating whether I should apply for med school for the 07/08 cycle. If so, I would be taking the MCAT in August because I hadn't taken it in April or never for that matter. The problem is, if I decide not to apply this year, I would have to take a year off next year and apply to med school for the 08/09 cycle. This means I would be off for a year after graduation. I've considered about taking another extra year of university but I have no definite information about this and its possibility. On top of this, if I do decide to apply this year for 07/08, I have to complete my application by the 1st of september and my MCAT scores will be released past that date. This means I would be applying to med school without knowing my MCAT scores until after the application is submitted. I guess it's all up to me to weigh the possibility of doing good on the MCAT and my ability to do so, but opinions would really help me make a decision too. Also, are there any people out there who went the route of taking a year off after graduation to prepare for med school while doing other things? Thanks for any help.
