I'm sorry if this is really redundant, there are many threads that ask this question, but the answers contradict each other. I want to focus on the MCAT. I heard it takes 3 weeks or so for scores to get released. I figured I could do my AMCAS immediately after I take the MCAT and the timelines would line up well. Then I heard if you submit your AMCAS before taking the MCAT, your application would actually get processed earlier. A friend added that you can indicate on the AMCAS that you are taking an MCAT in the future.. and that's the best way to do it. I'm pressed for time (obviously). I don't even know how much time the AMCAS would take, but I figure if I do that first it may push my MCAT date back, and at this point I'm already thinking August -- I want to do really well. Is it worth the time? Or can I work on my AMCAS while my MCAT is being scored and released? What is the consensus?
