    Need advice for MCAT's

    Hello All,

    I am currently taking my basic science classes as I already have a bachelor of science degree. I am taking Bio 1&2 this semester. I plan to complete my science classes (Bio 1&2, Chem 1&2, Orgo 1&2 and Physics 1&2) by the fall of 2010.
    While completing these courses I plan to study for the MCAT's as well as study for them after I complete the courses for 2-4 months, which pushes the timeline to take the MCAT's to Feb-April . However, my goal is to somehow apply U.S. American schools for Fall 2011, considering my age which is 27. I wanted to know in order for me to do that when will I have to take my MCAT's by and if there any possible ways I can apply for fall 2011 as I would not like to delay it any further.

    I appreciate all the help. Thank you.

    you never know how many organic chem passages and stand alone organic chem questions will be covered on the exam but getting even one question right makes a huge differnce in getting (for example) a 15 instead of a 14 on the biological science section. so organic chemistry is important and it should be stressed (to be on the safe side)

    I agree. Although OChem is not a huge component of the MCAT, it's an important enough subject that you should get a background in it so that the questions are not completely unfamiliar to you.

I have volunteered in hospitals, shadowed doctors and am working at a doctors office. I am 30yrs old and I am not certain if I can enter medical school. I really appreciate any advise I can get.
    It's going to be tough, even if you have a stellar MCAT score. Caribbean school and US DO schools tend to be more forgiving with the GPA, but not so much at US and Canadian MD schools.

    That being said, you should do everything you can to stay in your home country. If you are an American or Canadian and not opposed to the osteopathic philosophy, you might want to consider DO programs over the Caribbean.

    If you're set on the Caribbean, it's best to stick with a "Big 4" school (SGU, Ross, AUC and Saba). The problem with the schools that don't require the MCAT is their reputation stateside. It's going to be difficult for you to get a residency in Canada, so you'll more than likely be relying on the U.S. for a residency position. You're already going to be at a disadvantage because you'll require a visa, you don't want to further hinder yourself because you attended a lesser known Carib program.
