This is a totally stupid question. Well I'm only in my second year of university and will not be taking the MCAT for a year. Seeing as it is better to write the MCAT in April to submit the application earlier, when really are you suppose to study. Man, next year I'm going to br dead taking physics and other courses, how do you study for coursework and the mcat together. Some people have said that they study for 3 hours each day from like january to april. WHERE on Earth do 3 hours a day magically appear from. Its like either the gpa or the mcat will suffer. Then you say Hey just wait and write it in August, but I don't think its wise to risk slots being filled up before I even apply. I NEED to spend a lot of time studying for my science courses because I have trouble with them, things don't catch on as easily as some people and I feel as if I need to spend more time than the average person studying. Also I'm making up for a bad freshman gpa Any comments would be helpful.
