This is specifically aimed at ones in Texas, but may not be the case:
I applied to UT Houston's Research Program recently(yes, I know I am late, but my advisor talked me into it the other day).
Issue: my MCAT is scheduled for May 31st and the program starts May 21st. I know they expect 40 hours of lab work each week, but would it be ok if I missed one day(notifying my mentor ahead of time of course) and made up the hours the rest of the week?
I'm asking out of ignorance of how strenuous they are in such formal research programs.

Probably going to be up to your mentor. But sometimes you don't do just lab work, they are suppost to be setting up an open hear surgery day, and occasionally they'll have speakers you need to watch. Your mentor probably couldn't cover for you there though.
No one on here can give you a definite answer. :)
