I really don't know when to take it. I am getting really stressed with classes and MCAT studying, so I would like to have a month in summer to study. What do you guys think? Does it put students at a big disadvantage to take the MCAT later?

If you think a month of extra study would have an impact on you score, definitely take that month. I'd apply 30 days later for even 1 extra MCAT point.

You'll still be completing secondaries by the time your score comes back. When people talk about late apps, they mean a lot later than that.

If you take it in June, you should make sure to have your AMCAS done and awaiting only the MCAT. My mistake was waiting to submit AMCAS until I got my scores. Oops...my app is still waiting to be reviewed at some places.
