Hey guys,

I plan to apply this June and I just took my MCAT 4/18. I still need to take my last quarter of Ochem + lab, Biochem, and 2 Biology labs which I will NOT have finished until around Winter or Spring 2009. I plan to do this all before starting med school in Fall 2009. My question is, are most med schools ok with me applying without being completely finished with the prereqs and noting that I plan to finish before starting? Thanks for any help.

Some schools require that you have your pre-reqs done before January of the year you matriculate. Other than that, you should be ok.

The hardest part right now is not knowing the end result. If I was accepted, the game would be over, I would have a school, fin aid, and be looking for housing. If I was rejected, I could at least prepare for the next cycle. However, being waitlisted at two schools and still waiting for an answer at another really puts me in limbo. There is really nothing I can do or committ to because things can change between now and mid-May. The best I can do is lay down tentative plans, but it's really annoying not knowing my status.
