So, I took the MCAT two days ago. I know nothing I am about to say is new, but it's new to me. I took seven full lenth practice exams and multiple section tests. I knew every F****** flash card and equation Kaplan made available. I did topicals and even covered every cabinet in my house with post-its about equations and embryonic stages, hormones, etc. Much to my dismay, the test was totally different than anything I've ever taken. I had been doing very well on my practice exams, scoring around 34. Usually, during practice exams I felt sure of at least half of my answers. In the verbal and biological sciences, I only felt sure of a few, the rest was educated guessing. I was totally out of my comfort zone. On the other hand, I felt that I knew a ridiculous about of equations that were not even tested in the physical sciences. I kept my cool through the first section and then half way through the verbal I just kept having the invasive thought, "this is hard, this is very hard." I pushed through it and only missed about a half a passage worth of questions in the last two sections, so I blindly guessed on about four questions in each section, but this is totally out of my comfort zone. Also, there was way more o-chem than Kaplan said there would be though it was not too difficult. When the test was over, I stared at the screen for all 5 minutes it gives you to decide whether or not to void your score. After recalling my friend who almost voided her score because she thought she failed and then got a 37, I decided to have my exam graded. After that, I went outside and fell to the floor crying like a five year old kid having a temper tantrum in the middle of a department store. I was quite a scene. After whipering the whole drive home, I drowned my sorrows in pino grigio and a nice homemade turkey burger, flipping through my notes to verify the few answers I was in fact sure about. Now two days later, I feel a little more human, a litter bit better but I am worried that it is because I have begun to elude myself about how well I may have actually done. I feel like I dedicated the last four months of my life to birthing this exam and to have botched it because it was so hard would be great loss. Does anyone else feel like this? Does anyone else know what the curves have been like in the last year? Like a 70% in verbal to get a 10, etc? Does anyone know where I can find those curves or statistics? I need something to cling to for the next 28 days? Congrats to all who finished and good luck to the May test takers. Last tid bit of advice for future test takers, if you are going Kaplan, take Kaplan and AAMC practice exams so you don't get too comfy with just Kaplan. Ciao!
