Summary of Application Experience
Don't remember the exact dates of everything but I started the Princeton MCAT prep in Jan 07 for the April MCAT. I was pleased with my physical sciences score (avg. 9), psyched about my biological sciences score (avg. 12-13) but disappointed with my verbal and essay (avg. 11 & O).
I had my recommendation letters (O-Chem prof, Biochem prof, and Clinic coordinator from place I volunteered at) in to the professional school office by beginning of April and submitted my application to TMDSAS at the beginning of July which was processed on the 13th. Just got interview intives from 4 of the 6 Texas schools I applied to.
