Hello All, I am a reapplicant who will be taking the MCAT the last possible date in August (26th). Previous MCAT (9,9,9) 27, 3.7 GPA and lots of extracurriculars. I have a good 2 years of solid clinical research with 2 co-authorships, 1 abstract published, and worked on about 3 NIH funded Clinical research studies. I was waitlisted at 3 schools the first time I applied, and was also mostly because I applied late (and my low MCAT). I know I will be late again (I've sorta backed myself into a corner by deciding to apply last minute), but I have been scoring in the mid 30s on my practice tests, so I'm more confident of the score. My question is how should I proceed with my application this cycle? I know I can check off that I'm retaking the MCAT, but will that stop me from receiveing secondaries from other schools? I'm not a NY resident but an east coaster and would like to go ideally to a nyc school. What are my chances? Thanks!
