undergrade (BCPM) GPA = 3.90
undergrad (AO) GPA = 3.90
Graduate (BCPM) = 3.30
Graduate (AO) = 3.7
EC = above average
LOR= will be average

MCAT - not taken yet (practice score were between 21-24 3wks ago).
I have been studying diehard for MCAT and statrted from basic to improve. I am definitely improving. I will take more FL kap practice tests after 3 wks to know where i stand.

My AMCAS is in. LOR and MCAT pending.
What do u guys think? Should I withdraw AMCAS for this year? Or take MCAT in Mid August and take a shot at Harvard and Hopkins (thinking I was not gonna get accepted there anyways, lets take a shot)...since I have already applied there thru AMCAS? Or do u think totally withdraw and try next year?

When do u think i should take MCAT?
I am so confused!!!!!!!!!
On the top, now I am receiving secondaries from my state school that I applied to...so, what should i do?

your undergraduate GPA is stellar, why are you having troubles with the MCAT??

are you registered to take the MCAT in July or August? if not, i think its a little too late and you might have to withdraw and wait a year.

You use sooo many !s lol.

Okay, now that my observations are complete, on to your situation.

If you can take the MCAT by early August, and BREAK 30, then go for it. Anything short of a 30 though, and I think you will be in trouble.

I am taking my MCAT on AUgust 14 (1 and onlky chance).
Meanwhile, I am receiving secondary applications from 5 schools that i applied to thru AMCAS.

Should I submit them now? OR is it pointless to do so in absence of MCAT score (as it would be incomplete)? (I was thinking to submit those secondaries within a wk of completing MCAT...regardless of score).

What should I do?

I would not submit those secondaries without evidence from practice tests that you might score in the competitive range. They are too expensive to submit to no purpose. For now, concentrate on the state school. Make studying for the MCAT your full-time job. Take a formal prep course if you can. If you aren't getting decent practice scores by August, then don't take the test. Study all winter, take it in January or May when you're truly ready, and apply next year. This is not a race.
