    Just took the mcat, feel like it is somewhere between 24-26. Have a 3.9 cgpa and 3.6 sgpa.

    From what I've heard on SDN, you are NOT too late if you submit your primary immediately.

    I've seen posts where people can still have a chance by applying in October. But surely that at least requires the necessary stats. Get the ball rolling!

    With your GPA, you're safe to apply till November-December. Anything past that you should shoot for a higher MCAT.

    Guys I need some help!! I got a 24 of the MCAT earlier this year (9ps/6v/9bs). I am signed up for the retake on Nov. 7th. My gpas are 3.4 cgpa/3.2 sgpa. I have good ec's and my application and LORS (including a DO LOR) are ready to go. What do you guys recommend I should do? Should I apply to just one school to get my application verified and then add my new score in December and send applications to all the schools??

    or....

    Should I just apply to all the schools right away? The only problem I see with this is that some schools might not even wait for my new score and just reject me. Thank You so much for any feedback in advance. I truly appreciate it.

    You could definitely apply to one school since you already have your eggs in a basket (LORs).

    But:

    I think the safest thing is to wait it out and build your app. Your science GPA is sort of low. It'd be of your best interest to perhaps retake or add additional science courses to boost that GPA. Boom you'll go into the 2015-2016 cycle with an awesome MCAT and strong GPA!
