I originally had my MCAT scheduled for the end of June but various things have come up (in life and work etc.) and I am not feeling as confident about taking the test at the end of June as I had hoped. Is pushing my test back to July 17th too late? I know I would get my score back in mid-August so that means that I would be submitting my entire primary in mid-august. Obviously this is not ideal, but is it a complete application ruiner? I know schools could see my application beforehand without my MCAT score, but I assume most won't move forward in the application process until they have your MCAT. This would also mean that I would be submitting secondaries in late-august, correct? I haven't had a ton of advice or help through this process so anything would be really appreciated. Thank you!
