    Hi guys,

    I just wanted to know the date so I can work my MCAT test date around that. Thanks!

    It will open in early May and you can start submitting it in early June. If needed, you can submit your app without your MCAT and then update it once you get your score. I would look into signing up for a test date relatively soon, as they can fill up quickly.

    You do not need to update AMCAS when you get your score. The score is automatically attached.

    AMCAS has opened for submissions in the first week of June the past three years.
    Your MCAT score will take 30-35 days to be published.
    You can submit your primary without your MCAT (people this cycle have said about 2 weeks for processing) and schools will send secondaries once your MCAT score is in, which happens at the same time you receive your score.

    Do be aware that if you submit your primary before receiving your MCAT score and the test doesn't go as well as expected that you will not be able to withdraw your primary application for a refund. At that point, you will just have the run with it. If you are worried about your MCAT, I would try to time it so you get your score before you need to submit your primary.
