I was wondering if anybody has advice for applying to medical school. I just finished undergrad and want to know what people recommend for timelines.
Is it best to apply this cycle (June Primary application) or take a year off and apply next June (2022). I have not taken the MCAT yet and was either going to start right now and take it May or maybe take it over the summer. I have two letters of recommendation lined up so far. Thanks in advance :)

You apply when you have the best possible app. Do NOT apply before taking the MCAT

  1. Pre-Medical
If the rest of your application is strong (or can be made strong within the next 6 months) then you could start studying for the MCAT now and apply this coming June. Do you have clinical experience/volunteering? Nonclinical experience/volunteering? Any leadership or research?
If the only thing you’re missing is your MCAT and you want to start med school in the Fall of 2022, apply this June.
