when is the last date someone can take the mcat and still be able to apply for 2008?
Sept. 2007 administration. Scores will be back in October (like the pre-CBT August test used to be).
ok thank you. so i should look at the deadlines for the schools i want to apply to when looking for last possible date to take this year's mcat?
Generally speaking however, the earlier you get your application completed, the better. But don't make the mistake of taking the MCAT too early (i.e. when you are not prepared for it)
will taking the july MCAT be considered late for the 2008 matriculation?
that's a good question, i would like to know that also, will taking it in july be ok?
anyone else care to respond
I also was still unsure about this. I am debating between taking it in june or july. From what I have heard if you take it in june you are still considered slightly early, close to midway though, and july is slightly after the halfway point. Can anyone confirm/reject this?
I think that with all of the new dates for the MCAT this year, it is going to change the incoming applications to med schools. I really think that there will still be people getting their apps complete on the first day possible, but there will also be alot of people who will get them in later, perhaps to see if they can get a better score on a 2nd MCAT? I don't know how to judge it, except to say that you still have to do what is best for you! If you don't have time to study for the April MCAT, then don't take it. It would be better to submit your apps a month or two later with a better MCAT then to rush everything and perhaps be submitting a weaker application overall.
