Could someone please clarify... I would like to start med school Fall 2009... I will be taking CHM 2 Fall 2007, O-Chem I Spring 2008, O-Chem II Summer 2008. When should I take the MCAT? I don't think I'd be ready by Spring 2008. If I take it August 2008, and I want to retake it, could I retake it Spring 2009? Also, when do you usually apply for med school....(how many months before you actually start)? If I have to apply before Spring 2009, but say I took MCAT August 2008 and I want to retake the MCAT, can I take it Spring 2009, and will the school not accept that MCAT? Would it mean I only have one chance to take the MCAT (August 2008) if I want to start med school Fall 2009? If this is the case, could I take the MCAT Spring 2008, before taking O-Chem II, so that I may have a chance of retaking it in August 2008 if need be? Thanks in advance for the input! ~Julie Also, WHEN is the MCAT offered? I've heard August...I've heard May...when else?
