Rising Juniors: This is the first time ever some students (predominantly rising juniors) will have the option of taking either the paper and pencil MCAT (in August) or the computer based version of the test (after August). A Kaplan survey of nearly 4,000 MCAT students revealed that 80% of respondents have never taken a computer-based test. The MCAT is high-stakes enough as it is, without the additional anxiety of taking it in an unfamiliar format. If you're a junior who has fulfilled all your course requirements, take the test before it changes. It's not too late to prepare for the August exam. If you enroll in August and decide you're not ready, you can always postpone to after the fall semester of your Junior year.

Rising Sophomores: The spring cycle in 2007 is a good option for sophomores who have completed their course requirements ahead of schedule as it gives them an early lead on the process. Admissions decisions to med school are rolling, so the earlier studetns apply, the better. April/May test takers will get their scores back before applying which can help with the school selection process. Additionally, though we advise against taking the MCAT twice as it's better to nail this grueling exam the first time, many (37%) do decide to repeat the rigorous exam. The spring cycle is early enough that it enables this.
