Hi everyone,

As I'm sure a few of you know, it's impossible to register for a reasonable January MCAT time/location. Guam is the most frequent to show up on the registration page, but it's literally the other side of the world from New York. The thing is, I *really* don't want to take the new MCAT for a few reasons, not least of which I'd have to add a few more classes to my schedule and possibly put of my application to summer 2016.

So yes, I'm considering traveling to Guam. Due to the extreme jet lag, I'd get there a week before the exam and spend my time during the days taking PTs. Could be a fun trip! Especially if there were some fellow pre-meds in the same boat to hang/get dinner with.

So who's with me! (Note: Australia/South Africa are alternative options.)

By the way, the plane tickets to Guam from New York in January are averaging just over $1000. It's a hefty price to pay, but so are 10 more credits (3 more classes)!

AAMC announced on their Twitter page that they will add more seats (not dates) to the current Jan. dates in the coming weeks.
