I'm scheduled to take the MCAT this May 31st, however, I don't feel that I would be able to get my "top score" by then so I am planning to reschedule it to either June 15th or July 13th. I've heard about the importance of submitting AMCAS applications as early as possible. If I take the MCAT in July and I wait until I receive my scores in mid-August to submit my application, would that be "not early?" That is, would it put me behind all the other applications? On the other hand, I understand if I take the MCAT in June and submit my application in July then that would still be still considered early, but it would be more helpful for me to have more than an extra 2 weeks to prepare for the MCAT. Please help me weigh the pros and cons. Thanks!
