I've scoured threads but couldn't find anything quite specific enough. I have an MCAT score and will be applying at the beginning of June. Looking at retake dates, most of the earlier ones are full in my area. If I take a later test date, I won't have my (second) score released until mid-June. In most of the threads the issue was knowing what your score was before applying, but I already have one to use as a guideline. I've read that schools don't receive applications until early July, so does this matter at all in terms of applying as early as possible? It might be enough to drive far away if that means I will be verified/considered by med schools as early as possible. Thanks for your input!
