    If that's what stands between me and the ultimate step score then that's a no brainer. Going all in (figuratively).

    Everyone seems to be underestimating the amount of coffee I consume. I even got up and went To the bathroom during an mcat section .

    Oh no you should definitely do this and report back.

    Don’t listen to the haters. They’re gels because they’re a bunch of 220’s who wish they came up with this sure fire idea.

    Same. But that was just because I flew through the sections with like 10-15 mins to spare. I’d just leave and let it clock out then go for the break.

    Lol, then it’s not the same. I feel like you just wanted a chance to say you finished your MCAT sections early :laugh:

    No, just recommending a strategy ;)

    Actually, wait it is the same. We both went to that bathroom during the sections. :wow:

    Um excuse me, the correct method is to let a few CC’s of pee drizzle out, then wait 15 minutes for it to dry. Repeat throughout the duration of the test to continually drain your bladder.

    I rarely post outside of the dermatology forums now but this thread certainly got my attention.

    Our certification exam is graded on a scale so essentially, be better than the bottom 5% and you get to be a board-certified dermatologist. I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see it with my own eyes but there are those who resort to secondary tactics like dressing scantily (in a frigid testing center with AC blasting...) to perhaps distract other test takers.

    I'm glad I didn't run into someone who would consider wearing an adult diaper and marinating a #2 in there. THAT would have likely thrown me off my game.

    He's an anesthesiology resident. What else is he doing? Airway, breathing, computer, donut, etc...

    Solid yea from me. As someone who drinks a ton of coffee, consequences be damned, I am in awe of anyone who actually does this.

    Just another reason I have a total internet crush on @Crayola227. One of these days I’ll find the courage to ask her out, don’t tell her.

    I have IBS.
    Test days can be kind of rough for me.

    I still have never considered this. Y’all never cease to surprise me.
