    Is June too late to be taking the PCAT for the first time if I plan on applying for fall 2010 admission? I was thinking about taking it in January but I don't think I'm prepared.

    Although some schools don't accept the Jan one for that year's admission (so Jan 2010 might not be accepted by some schools for Fall 2010 admission).

    that means schools do not require Pcat score at the time we apply, we can submit later on, is it right?

    You can take the PCAT in June and apply in June. When you take the PCAT you get 3 free mailing addresses to mail your scores. If you choose to submit it later...then just leave those three addresses blank. When you want to submit it later it will cost you 20 dollars though. Basically you save 20 dollars by submitting RIGHT away.

    Yes, you can take it now and then submit it in June, but it will cost you 20 dollars to submit your scores.
