First of all, here are my stats: Graduated from UWisconsin-Madison in 3 years (graduating this month) with a 3.85 gpa and 3.7 science gpa, majoring in political science. Studied abroad one semester in galway ireland. 1 year of clinical psychology research. 32 mcat (9 VR, 12 PS, 11 BS). will start an IRTA post-bacc research fellowship at the NIH doing alcoholism research, somewhat related to the research I did in undergrad). volunteered, yadda yadda. Ok, now here is the question. I was diagnosed with ADHD in my soph year of high school. I have taken tests with extended time, and have usually done far better on them because I simply cannot focus 100 percent of the time and will take longer to complete most exams. However, with this MCAT, I did not request extended time, because I felt that since the adcoms would know that I had the extra time, they would not take my score seriously. Recently, I found out through my doctor that the reason for my "ADHD" is because my brain receives 15-20 percent less oxygen than it should due to the fact that I am a mouth breather and cannot breath through my nose for anatomical reasons that require surgery to fix. because of this, I am kind of pissed because this means I truly have a disability that can be fixed in the near future, and am thinking about taking the MCAT with extra time this next spring. My question: I REALLY want to get into a top 10 school, because I am positive I want to enter into an extremely competitive specialty (integrated plastics). Do you think it would be crazy to apply for extended time on the MCAT, take the MCAT this spring, take 2 years off to do research instead of one, and apply to med school next year instead of this year? I know I would do far better on it, because on all my practice tests, I would pretty much get every question right on all of the questions I did get to, but would have to bubble in C's for the last 12-15 questions on each section (which is what I had to do for the real MCAT too). help! thank you.
