    So I currently go to UVA and I am in the Commerce School there. My cGPA is a 3.54 and my ECs are president of the Persian Club, am an owner of a business at School and will be managing it full time next year, working at a dental office for 3 summers, and working in a research lab at UVA. I am also about to start shadowing a pediatrician this summer. I have yet to take the MCATs because I was way too busy this semester and I knew I would not do well if I took in the beginning of the summer. My current plan is to take it August 15th. I hope to get mid-30s on it since I am taking this summer to study for it. Further note, I won't be taking my physics lab until my fourth year. Would my application for this cycle even be good considering my late MCATs and not even having physics lab done?

    Apply with the best possible app, even if it means waiting a year.

    That was the point of my post, yes. Watch out for reading comprehension on the MCAT VR section!
