It would help to have organic 2. When does organic 2 finish next summer?Looks like my GPA will be a 3.6 - 3.65 when all is said and done, depending on how the next year goes. The bad GPA was in 2007-2008 and my current school GPA is not affected by transfer grades, so hopefully that helps a little bit...
As for volunteering, I have around 1500 hours of non-clinical volunteering, 100 hours of clinical volunteering, and 50 hours of shadowing. My nursing program has approximately 750 clinical hours, but I'm not sure if that counts. Non-clinical volunteering includes a month in Panama at a wildlife rescue center, taking care of cats at an animal shelter, tutoring GED students, and teaching/administrative work at ballet schools.
If I study for the MCAT enough on my own, could I take it in July without the organic 2 material? Or do you really need the full year of o-chem to do well?
With those dates it should be fine to take the MCAT in late July. You could submit you AMCAS application in early August to one school and then when your score is available in late August add more appropriate schools based on your score. Give us an update next year.The dates do not seem to be available for next year, but for the last three years the final day has ranged from August 6th to 9th. Perhaps Saturday, August 5th? Worst case it would be the 12th.
