    Just a query to all those who write the August MCAT's..
    If you have finals in April, how do you manage to write the April MCAT and be fully prepared??
    Do you take a reduced course load that semester?
    Or, do all of you have amazing time management skills..?
    Do tell...

    Both :)
    I only took 12 credit hours (semester hours... which was 4 courses and the least amount I could take and still be considered full time) and I made sure I studied for the MCAT for AT LEAST 14 hours a week starting in January.

    I just took the April mcat. I did have a reduced course load that semester (13 credits, 3 of which were a pass/fail class... compared to my normal 15-17). Time management skills didnt really come into play since studying for the mcat was all i did for about 4 weeks, 4 to 5 hours a day. My finals didnt start until after April, 28 - more than a week after the mcat, so they werent an issue. I just tried to squeeze in coursework here and there, between study sessions.
