Two questions, please,

I'm certain I will finish my prereq classes for MCAT preparation by Spring 2018, but I'm not sure what I should be doing whilst studying for MCAT in the summer. Should I also be preparing my application to medical schools? I'm not sure of the timeline for those things and if they overlap.

By Spring 2018, I also will not have finished my undergrad bachelors in biology. I'm not sure of the course of action I should take.

I will speak to a health professions adviser at college at some point during fall 2016 but it's a really small and busy office. I'd really appreciate any guidance sooner than later.

Thank you.

When do you plan on attending medical school? You should be applying in June, the year before you plan to enroll. Take the MCAT in the summer of 2018, apply summer of 2019, attend summer/fall 2020
