    Hi,
    for those who have applied before or are better at searching the internet than i am, when is the earliest that we can submit the amcas? I've read that the new mcat will only take 30 days to grade, so when are most people going to take this? Is there a reason to take it in april or will may tests put us at the same advantage?

    The new MCAT will not affect when you can submit AMCAS. It's in your best interest to take it as early as you feel ready. But you're right, taking it in May and having a 30 day turnaround would be the same as those of us who took paper and pencil in April 06.

    Yes, it's usually within the first week of June.
