    I think life is too short to point fingers and blame others. Accept the fact that the exam is getting harder, study for it, and move on. Don't dwell. Don't try figuring out why it's getting harder. Who cares? Just accept it

    I agree.

    Please let this misery end already. I am now just looking forward to the part when I have to answer that last BS question. I am now just looking forward to post-MCAT. I am going to go to the theatre and watch so many movies. Omg. I feel like I'm in limbo. At the same time, I'm feeling so many other different emotions. :idea::laugh::love::eek::scared::confused: :cool: :luck:

    Yeah, I'm still confused because 11 was obviously harder in both PS and BS but I scored well on them.

    I didn't think it was harder. I thought it required me to think harder. But all the answers for BS were in the passages. Lots of research based exe. What did they find? I did a lot worse on the other BS sections like 10's and 11's where they would ask for stupid facts. For PS is was a little harder, calculation heavy if anything.

    But people are saying their MCAT was easier than the BS on 11, or at least equal. So i'm expecting a 14-15 here haha. PS is a gamble.

    I agree with you about the BS section, there really wasn't any WTF moments for me while I took it. Most of the answers were in the passage or could be inferred from the passage, I admit there were a couple questions where I simply didn't know the answer because I forgot some random fact or something but other than that it wasn't terrible. I need to review the test tonight though so we'll see.

    I think the post-test emotion and anxiety will kill our moods for the entire month of May until the score comes out, i.e. "OMG should I start studying right now in case I have to retake ?"

    haha not me...I need to instantly forget everything about the test after I take it and start studying for finals :scared: . Then after finals are over I'll probably just review concepts and do verbal practice just in case...you can never be too prepared for verbal...(unless you're name is nicknaylor, then you just go in and get a 15 on the verbal section like a boss)

    Yea I'll probably have some restless/sleepless nights during May. And even when I'm filling up my apps, post-test emotion is going to be looming.

    and don't forget to complete your amcas app (&aacomas if you're also applying DO like me)

    I took it last May and it was probably 60% calculations with numbers that didn't work out relatively neatly. I'm not trying to be an alarmist but it was tough and I voided. I'm praying that I feel confident enough to at least submit it on Sat.

    Who's going to continue studying after taking the exam on Sat? I've heard that's the smart thing to do unless you're really confident you got a great score.

    Yeah, same. I'm going to take a week or two off, party like crazy, drink 20 shots of Goose every night, and then after that i'm going to start doing about 2-3 verbal passages a day until the may 30th. If i'm not happy with my score, i'll retake in june

    Vegas for me. LOOOL. From what I've seen around the forums is just be confident in your averages. 90% chance you hit your average even if you feel you bombed the test.

    First masturbate, now cocaine?

    #charliesheenisbecomingadoctorwtf

    Was not kidding at difficulty--and people say MCAT is even harder!

    Also **** you mr Neuro, look at it: I CALLED YOU GETTING A 13

    CALLLLEDD ITTTTTT

    eat **** and die ps please take my mcat.

    I might be going to midyear in December if I can get the hospital to pay for it, and also you can't trust your averages. People do amazing on AAMC3-5, and then 7-9 is "reality". I did better on 7-9, then on 10 I got a 29, and 11 I got a 31. So....****.

    My PS section last may was more verbal-ish than anything else.

    I didn't have anything that was crazy calculation heavy.

    I did think that PS was crazy and got an 11. So don't trust how you feel.

    You haven't run out of the Verbal passages ?? I have 11 left and probably will save them for the possible retake.

    I think that's relative. It was my lowest score.

    It's definitely relative- 11 was my highest score (aside from 4 which hardly counts)

    There's a crazy stomach thing going around on our campus- wash your hands frequently! Or just avoid contact with all others if possible. I almost lost it when a guy coughed all over me in the ER yesterday.

    damn...upon reviewing AAMC 11...some of the PS questions I got wrong were dumbbbbbb >_< If I wasn't so busy panicking about time I might have gotten them right. And for BS there were a few that I flip flopped on and just ended up picking the wrong answer..except for one question where I even wrote the answer down in my notebook as I was taking the test but then picked the opposite option for some reason haha. Oh well..live and learn?
