The MCAT. The Great Academic Equalizer. No matter how well you perform in your undergraduate or post-bacc program, there is no replacing a poor MCAT score. As you embark upon the testing odyssey, bring along your finest time management and retention skills on the journey. You’ll need them.
So, when is the best time to take the MCAT? Well, there are a few factors to consider, including the fact that MCAT scores are only released 30 days after the testing date. This means that for someone applying in June of 2020, an August 2020 date lands too late in the application cycle. This can mean falling behind the rest of the pack of applicants. Keep your overall application cycle timeline in mind when selecting your test date.
