    Want to start in Jan. 2013 - earliest time to send application

    Advertisements



    Hey, I am interested in getting into AUC for the Jan. 2013 semester - does anyone know what is the earliest time that I could send my application and have it reviewed? The website says that you should send in your app 4-5 months before the semester you wish to start in but I did a search and found that somebody sent their app almost a year before and still got an acceptance. If I sent my app crazy early like in Jan. 2012 for Jan. 2013 would it get looked at immediately or would they let it sit before they review it?

    As an aside - I will be retaking the MCAT in December 2011 and I want to send in my app as early as possible (Jan. 2012) cause I got a bro at AUC who can hook me up with the lecture notes and I want to get a jump start on them. This will be my 2nd shot at med school and I feel that things didn't go good the 1st time cause I didn't have any background in science except for the prereqs.

    Make sure that you don't attempt to conceal the fact that you've been dismissed from medical school before when applying or it can bite you later. You can probably apply as early as they release the application form with the semester you want as a checkbox option, not sure about earlier than that. I suggest you figure out the real reason that it didn't work out the first time. I didn't have a single science class other than the pre reqs before coming here and I still didn't fail a single class and am now done with the basic sciences. It wasn't easy but totally doable. Lack of a background alone is not a good enough reason for not succeeding. You may want to look more closely at whether you have attention disorders or some sort of medical condition that kept you from succeeding. You should also evaluate how much you care about passing and how important this whole thing is for you. Investing more time and money should only be done once all the above has been considered and ruled out and decided upon.

    Doing well in Med school has little to do with the prereqs and ALL to do with your study habits. If your study habits have not changed since the last time you attempted med school you are just going to be throwing away your money again.

    Thanks for answering my question guys. Do you know how I would be able to find out if I have attention disorders or other learning disability? Also, do you guys know of any resources which I could use to become a better student?

    I really want to achieve this and study crazy hard for it. I am willing to do anything to become a better student before I try medical school again.

    I applaud your courage and commitment to reattend medical school. Many who would fail would look the other way and stay clear from medical school. I wish you all the best and make sure you perceive you decision with highest optimism.

    Getting to your question I suggest you visit a physician or a learning therapist and you let them know your symptoms and if they think you have a learning disability they will let you know.
