Hi,

I wasn't "economically disadvantaged" in high school; however, things changed A LOT in college. I'm now on full fin-aid, and work a job because of my current financial situation. Would I be considered "economically disadvantaged"? I'm asking this because the MCAT registration asks :"Would you like to be included in the Med-MAR service? ... if you are " you are economically disadvantaged.""

You're not economically disadvantaged. You're a poor college student. Welcome to college. Economically disadvantaged refers to how you grew up -- i.e., your childhood lifestyle (or that of your family).
