How long before the August MCAT should one start studying. I just started studying last week (so I guess I have about two months). Any advice on a study strategy to help me make the best use of the little time I have. (I'm taking the MCAT for the first time.) Also what is an acceptable science gpa. Is it calculated based on the medical school prerequisites or based on every science/math class you've ever taken. (I'm a chem major that's why I was wondering).
