MCAT Registration Now Open

Attention students considering starting medical school in the fall of 2013. Now is the time to start seriously thinking about the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). The MCAT is historically taken during the spring semester of your JUNIOR YEAR of college. That’s right, more than a full year in advance.

The American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) which owns and administers the MCAT has just announced that registration for this spring’s administration has just opened up on the AAMC website ( Students who know precisely when they want to take the MCAT should register right away. Students who are not sure should finalize their plans now and then register immediately.

Preferred dates and locations fill up rapidly and it is in your best interest to get your slot reserved so you can start studying for the exam. If you have any questions contact Doug Woodmansee. Yes it is true, the admission cycle for Fall 2013 starts in Fall 2011!
