Are you supposed to start applying to med school your junior year? Are you supposed to take the MCAT in April of your junior year? It seems really early.
No, you don't apply junior year. Some apply the summer before their senior year. Others take time off and apply after they graduate. It just depends what you want to do with your life.physiclas87 said:

"taking it early" usually means to take it in April of junior year if you plan to apply during the summer between junior and senior year (when the cycle starts). it all depends when you apply.physiclas87 said:I'm so confused!! A lot of people say to take it early...in April instead of August. Are they saying try for April of you junior year???? What do most people do????
Yeah, I think this is a good tip. If you've got the pre-reqs done, then you should feel comfortable with the MCAT material. This way you're studying during the summer and if you wanna take another shot at it, you can still take it again in the April of your junior year.MWillie said:You should try for August after sophomore year if you're really with it.
