You’re applying to medical school in 2018 and aren’t sure when to take the MCAT.
Here’s the deal.
Take the medical college admissions test (MCAT) early.
We cannot stress enough the importance of applying early to gain admission to medical school.
In our experience, you will increase your chances of receiving interviews if you are considered in a smaller pool of applicants.
Do you see how important this is?
Clients with roughly the same stats and accomplishments tend to have greater success when they apply early versus late.

This also means taking the MCAT as early as possible.
If you take an August MCAT, this puts you in the “late bucket” of applications.
What does this mean?
While some applicants have success if they take the August MCAT, you will optimize your chances of success if you take an earlier exam.
So let’s start planning now.
We encourage clients to retain our services as soon as possible for the 2018/2019 application season.
This year’s cycle has been fiercely competitive.
Because of our clients’ success this year, we expect to become booked as next season progresses. Ideally, you should submit applications in early June for the 2018/2019 season.
We’ve got you covered:
If you are applying this year and have either not received interviews or have only received waitlists thus far, you must also start to think about reapplying if this becomes necessary.
