i applied to 3 schools; two state mds and one state do. i didn't get completed apps until oct. and i was rejected from the mds and on hold at the do (finally told their interview slots were full = rejection). overall gpa is 3.68, science is 3.65. i need to improve my mcat (mid-20s) and i am thinking about registering for aug and then applying next cycle so i can get on the early end. i've heard that the curves for august and sept. are pretty harsh (b/c people have longer to study) .. is this true? i am working as an e.r. tech, but i graduated last may (07). will this be too much time w/o classes? any advice would be greatly appreciated.
