    i dont know how it is in Ohio, but im in Michigan and i checked AAMC 3 times a day for 2 months before i found an opening on August 20th for ANY test center in michigan. i just signed up for the Aug 20th like a week ago. if ur testing centers are empty then by all means wait as long as u want. im just going off my own experiences. i say better to be safe and sign up now then be sorry later when everythings full.

    thanks for the heads up

    I was gonna wait until maybe a month before test date or something to sign up.. I was always able to do that with the SAT

    But just to make sure, I checked... all the ones near me are empty. But just to be sure, I'll sign up now so I don't have to worry about it later... August 20th it is =D

    Um... excuse me but why wouldn't you sign up as soon as you could? It's not like they give prizes for those who wait until 2 weeks beforehand :laugh:

    The only effect of waiting to sign up is the likely chance that your preferred location would be taken. In short: sign up as soon as physically possible of you know you are going to take it on that date. You've got nothing to loose.

    I completely agree. I can't understand what sense it makes to wait to a month before to take a test as important as the MCAT...

    i had the livonia on the 16th, but then i switched to the 20th at troy, now im thinking about moving it up a month to july 12th depending on how good i do on practice exams in the next couple months. id still study tho from july12th to august 20th, and id sign up for the aug 20th as a backup plan if i bombed the july 12th one. but its just an idea for now.
