Hello. I am applying for med school next summer (2016) and I am taking a full courseload next semester (comp. anat., bio chem, virology, immunology and maybe one more). I have some time this semester to study, but it looks like they only offer test dates in like April. So I'm thinking if i study really hard i'll just be rusty by then. Option 2 is to take the mcat on Sept 23. Ive taken all my pre-reqs, and I went to a really hard school, so I feel like I could bust my ass and do it. I have all the berkeley mcat books, and im' going to get one for the new psych section. I know there's a pretty good chance I'll have to retake it if i flop, but i also see value in getting over the fear of taking the mcat. Even if i do poorly, it won't be like a huuuuge battle to prepare and retake. What do you guys think?
