    Hey everyone,
    I have a quick question regarding admissions for fall 2019 entrance. Does anyone know if students who apply later in the cycle generally get less scholarships? I have recently decided I want to go the podiatry route rather than MD/DO, and I'm graduating this coming May. I'd like to avoid a gap year, but if I can get more financial aid by applying early next cycle, that might be the way to go. For reference, my stats are 3.55 cgpa, 3.39 sgpa and a 502 MCAT. If I don't apply this spring, I could potentially retake my MCAT and get a better score to maybe earn more scholarship money next cycle.
    I am interested in Temple, Scholl, Kent st, and DMU.
    Thank you for any feedback!

    MCAT retake won't matter,

    With your current stats you'd get scholarships. Again, first come first serve basis.

    It is up to you whether you want to wait and apply next cycle, or apply now.
