Congrats! Qr isn't that bad but you should still contact some schools before you apply to see if they do have cutoffs. Though schools dont consider qr that much. If you were to do it over again, how would you approach your materials differently? Specifically the last two weeks? Panicking bc my test is soon!

Cwinship Congratulations! Excellent scores and I would NOT be too concerned with your QR scores your other scores more than make up for it, schools like good scores in reading and science; YOU accomplished that. If you have any concerns with a certain school I always suggest you contact them directly with your stats. I see no reason you would not receive interviews with scores like these.

Wishing you the very best and enjoy what's left of summer!

Hello, I will definitely do some research in regards to cutoffs at certain schools.

If I were to tackle this exam again, I would do pretty much the same thing I did. The only thing I would change is how I began my studying. I was working full time during the first month of my studying, so I was not getting the hours I needed in each day. The best thing that I did was stop working and made studying a job. I feel as though I would be more prepared if I had not been working, but every person is different, I am sure your study regiment works for you.

The last few weeks of studying were the most stressful, as I believe one can never truly feel ready for this exam. All I can say is to be confident. If you put the work in, you will do fine.

My last couple weeks of studying consisted of all practice questions. Every day I did questions in the Destroyer and bootcamp, and a PAT on bootcamp every other day. The week of, I continued practice questions extensively, and not only by looking at the right answer, but also why the other answers were wrong. I also went through Chad's quizzes in general chemistry and organic chemistry, and I believe that helped me a lot as well. The day before the exam, I looked over a few things in the morning, Then I went golfing. Anything to get my mind off of it so that it was fresh come test day. After dinner I looked over a couple notes and got to bed early. As long as you keep your mind organized, put in the study effort, and look at every question carefully, you will do well.

Good luck!

Thank you so much! It really is a weight off my shoulders. Sacrificing this summer for studying was so worth it now. Enjoying August before move in day as much as I can!
