I am a sophomore in undergrad. I will not be a junior until AFTER next semester (by 1 credit). I did not go straight to college after high school. However, the only pre-reqs for med school that I need are Orgo I & II which I will be taking next year. I still have awhile to go after that in order to get my bachelor's. I know that the schools I want to apply to require a bachelor's. Should I apply for med school after next year? I have kind of a confusing predicament. I am not on the "normal" pre-med schedule and it's a little confusing...

Wow was that painful to read. If you apply next year, you will be in your senior year and have to deal with applications and interviews while you're in school. No biggie really, just a thought.

Some med schools do not require a bachelor's and perhaps you could apply to those if you so desire. Study for your MCAT and see how you do. Apply after you are happy with your MCAT score. That's my opinion and the suggestion given to me when I was deciding when to apply.

The earliest you should apply is June of the year before you want to go to med school. For example, if you know you'll graduate in May 08 you should have started applying in June 07. You'll have to figure out when that is because your story is a tad confusing.

Coming from a very similar situation myself and having to take a year before applying I have a few suggestions:
1) get the MCAT done asap (dont let it slip up on you)
2) have your pre-reqs done by June of the year before you want to enter school
3) June application is early, but more competitive
4) have some kind of employment lined up after graduation in case you don't get accepted (if you get accepted before graduation more power to you).

That is a very clear and concise way to put that. thank you!
