    I have a 27 MCAT, and I just applied MD this cycle.
    I wonder if anyone has retaken the MCAT after applying (in December or January), in case of any wait lists or late interviews.
    Do you recommend that I do so?

    Not for MDs but I know someone who retook the MCAT in October for DO and got a 29. It helped him get an interview sometime in December and an eventual acceptance.

    I do know a person who did take the MCAT in September last year while applying MD. Although he had stellar stats/ECs and I believe a 90%+ percentile score.

    Did this person eventually get accepted? If so, do you know to how many schools?

    I am not sure how many schools, but I know at least two he got in.

    The latest MCAT that most MD schools (if not all) accept is in September.
