    Anyone studied the ExamKrackers way, and realized that some of the actual PS questions in 4/28 were pretty similar to some of their practice questions?

    Generally not knowing about two portions of an application means no stress haha.

    Does anyone know how significantly late you will be if you submit mid-June?

    dude, you will not be late at all if you apply this month.

    a buddy of mine applied last cycle on june 12th and is going to harvard

    and another buddy of mine applied june 16th and is going to NYU.

    as long as you send your secondaries by the end of july, you will be fine.

    I was averaging a 30-31 on practice tests.
    Actual test day sucked...I had to guess on what felt like soooo many questions since time was running out. I honestly feel like I scored 5-6 points below my average.

    I'm so scared right now.

    S02E09 was ridiculously good. RIDICULOUSLY GOOD. You will watch it like three-four times guaranteed.

    I just realized that I had my first MCAT dream last night it went a lil something like this

    I had done poorly on the 4/28 MCAT and I was on the testing site about to take the test and the proctor told everyone in the room that Medical Schools started accepting ACT scores now so we're actually going to take the ACT instead of the MCAT...as soon as he said that I woke up...only in my dreams huh? haha :laugh:

    hey everyone,
    thought i would add to the forum. i am a 4/28sdner as well. urgently waiting my scores with you guys. i am a retaker as well. I was averaging a 25 on the AAMC practice exams. I am scared out of my mind about getting my scores today. all our years of studying and dreaming come down to today.
    just remember to have faith. it will all work out the way it is supposed to, and those of us fortunate enough to do well this mcat administration, we will all laugh at this dreadful waiting period. but i predict that it will take a long, LONG time for that to happen lol

    .....I wish....

    On a slightly related note, do you have to take the pcat for pharmacy school or will the mcat work? This girl told me she didn't take the pcat she only took the mcat and applied md and phrm and got in both but went pharm. She's also been a pharm for 5 years so she applied 9 years ago

    If only S02E01-08 were half as good, might be worth it.

    Maybe the only good thing coming out of this is it seems to be the consensus that this test was difficult for most ... so maybe the curve will help us out.

    Adrenal medulla is epinephrine.
    Cortisol is cortex.

    Ohhh you're right.

    It's CANE - so Cortisol and Ald are released by the cortex. Welp, lets hope I don't have to retake this bugger, because apparently my little neurons have been fried by the high amounts of chronic stress.

    lol, yeah. I've been refreshing this thread instead of THx. I don't want the numbers splashing right into my face so suddenly. At least there has to be some sort of mental preparation.

    I was thinking AAMC should put out this warning: "MCAT is not for those with history of heart attack" or sth similar. Darn. I'll probably have to drive to hospital and check my score there. In case if I fall into my feet, someone will be able to get me helped immediately.

    I feel the exact same way... scored 30s-34 on practice but could have gotten a 25 for all i know. also i took it once last year and got a 28 so i'm doubly scared that i could have done worse!
