It's time to decide on when is the best and smartest testing date for you to maximize your chances of med-school admission.
It's time to figure out your overall strategic approach for your unique situation, that will make sure you never have to write the MCAT again.
We'll be covering all of that in this article...
But before we get to all that good stuff, here are the 2020 MCAT dates if you haven't seen them already:
When To Take The MCAT To Maximize Your Med-School Admission Chances
So how do you decide on when to take the MCAT? Here are our MCAT test day registration tips for when to take the MCAT to maximize your chances of med-school admission...
First, the only way you can make the smartest and best decision for your test day is if you have all the information at your fingertips. So here we've succinctly noted pretty much everything you need to know make a strategic plan and smart decisions about your test day.
Initially, we'll talk about med-schools that have rolling admissions, who review applications as they're received. Then, we'll talk about med-schools that have hard deadlines and no rolling admissions.
Keep in mind, most schools in Canada (and less than a dozen in U.S.) have hard deadlines and no rolling admissions.
With that said, let's begin...
So there you have it...
Everything you need to know to achieve your desired MCAT and med-school admission outcomes strategically.
If you learned something new here, we hope this got you thinking about how important it is to first spend some time gaining the insights of those who are already where you want to be. Not spending the time gaining this leverage is why there are way too many premeds who suffer during MCAT prep...
Some start out strong and feel the anxiety when their scores don't improve. Some are strong all the way through until there are only a few weeks left to the MCAT and they realize they're not on route to get the MCAT score they really want and need.
Others are terrified right from the start - not knowing how to even begin studying in the best way possible.
Many have to retake the MCAT all over again, dealing with even more pressure than before.
All of this can be avoided if students just take the time to first understand HOW to take the MCAT; how to study for it, how to approach passage-based questions, how to study for CARS, what the highest yield topics are, how to think through question stems and answer choices, how to finish the exam in the given time, what to study first, what to study last, how to schedule MCAT prep, how to first master the concepts and more importantly how to apply it all....
And that's not all - there's so much more to know. We can go on and on but the point is, you can't just jump into studying for the hardest exam of your life without a strategic plan, especially if the exam's primary goal isn't to test your knowledge (like all the other exams you're used to), but to stretch your knowledge!
Its goal is to test your limits by trying to trick you, confuse you, test your mental and emotional stamina, and ultimately see if you're truly med-school material. To score 510+ or even 508+ on this exam, you need to know what you're up against so you know how to take the MCAT...
And the best way to do that is to get the reliable insights and strategies which got MCAT writers before you 90+ percentile MCAT scores. They figured out all the high leverage strategies so you don't have to. All you have to do is copy and apply them.
Yes, it will take a little time to learn their strategies. But it's worth it. Learning from their successes and mistakes can save you days, weeks, and even months of ineffective studying where your score is just staying stagnant.
If that makes sense to you, this is where you can learn top scorer MCAT study methods which will help you achieve your 510+ MCAT score that gets you into med-school.
Lastly, whether you're retaking from an attempt in 2019 or starting fresh to write your first MCAT in 2020, just remember that you have what it takes...
You're smart. It's all a matter of learning how it all works first.
