Summary of Application Experience
My first MCAT was a 23, I brought it up to a 31 in January and was accepted to Mercer. MCG rejected me because they do not accept MCATs past the traditional September cut-off date; and I can't vouch and say that Mercer allows January MCATs in every case either, but for me they did, and I am thankful! I knew I didn't have a chance at Emory with a 23 before a retake, so I withdrew. Mercer is the school for me and I am glad this long and aggravating process panned out the way it did.
