    If so, what is your strategy? I have 3 labs this semester, plus upper division psychology courses, work at a pharmacy, EC-involvement like student government, a girlfriend, and I'm moving into a house with 4 other dudes who don't know di** about what it takes to get into professional school. I also have 13 hours of summer school starting in about a week, I need to raise my GPA a good .3, do more shadowing, find and start doing research for my honors thesis (Thank the Lord I can wait to officially start the damn thing my senior year), and maintain a somewhat regular workout schedule to release the inevitable tension I will gain this year. But it'll be a defining year for me, no doubt... Anyone else in a similar situation?

    Hey, I would say to check out the Examkrackers complete study guide and Audio Osmosis. I'm using the two together this summer to kick off the studying for the April 2009 MCAT and it's going well so far.

    Welcome to the hell that is Junior year haha. I just finished it and am taking the MCAT in 4 days. Junior year makes or breaks you but trust me, if you have the dedication and stay focused on your goals you'll be okay (i'm not saying that's necessarily easy)

    wow, thats a lot of months to study for the MCAT. I was gonna start reviewing all the material over the summer, then hit the full-length test grind starting about september and take it in early 09.
