- Reaction score
You will be screened on the basis of your current score. Med schools are under no obligation to wait for a new score, and it's foolish to apply without that new score. Suppose that you get a 513, yet you applied to Stanford and Yale? Those now become donations.Hi, I was wondering if any of you know whether the adcom will evaluate my new MCAT score after I submit the secondary application.
I am a non-traditional student with 3.9 GPA and I have an un-expired MCAT score of 512. Seeing how I didn't get in my first time with this, I think one of the things that I could do was to re-take MCAT to improve my chances.
I wanted to apply again this cycle with that score for now, so that I can apply early. But the problem is that I am re-taking MCAT in August (score to be released in mid-Aug). I think I would have submitted some/most of the secondary applications by that point. If AMCAS is updated with a new MCAT score, I want to know whether the adcom will take my new MCAT score into consideration when they consider me for II. Does anyone know or have experience in this?
Take the MCAT and then apply. It's a pre-med delusion that early is mandatory, and you have to have your app in by 6/1. Schools stratify the apps as they come in and don't send out secondaries or IIs merely in chronological order.
It's OK to apply to a throwaway school to get the verification process going.
