Preparing for entry into medical school can dominate the entire school year. There is still plenty to do and plan for during the summer months. MedicalSchoolsInUSA.com offers an updated timeline of MCAT testing dates as well as Early, Regular, and Late Registration dates. As the medical field grows with private practice, specialized care, and community care, it is imperative to keep important dates and information readily available.
The next MCAT is scheduled for June 19, 2015, and late registration begins June 6, 2015. Late registration may come with additional fees so anyone interested in taking the MCAT this summer should look and see when the earliest registration times are to avoid paying more.
Looking ahead of time at the MCAT dates will also help when planning study time over the summer. MedicalSchoolsInUSA.com suggests allotting three to six months of studying prior to taking the MCAT. “It can take approximately 300 hours of study to have the basic preparedness for the MCAT,” explained spokesperson Stephan Trumball. “If anyone feels overwhelmed by that prospect, we highly recommend having help from a tutor for the areas a student may feel weakest in. Summer is a great time as tutors tend to have more flexible schedules to assist.”
For Juniors in college the focus this summer should be looking at what time they will have to study for the MCAT over the next school year. For Seniors this summer should be spent either retaking the MCAT if necessary, sending in applications for medical school, following up with approved applications, and preparing for interviews.
The financial aid process has its own set of deadlines and often additional paperwork is needed to qualify. All potential medical school students who are looking for aid should begin the process as early as possible with research and information collection.
“Always check with a specific school or testing site for additional information,” Trumball added. “MedicalSchoolsInUSA.com is a reference site and offers general guidelines and tips. Students should always research specifics. We hope all students have a fun and productive summer as they prepare for the next step in their medical journey.”
