I'm thinking about studying up for the mcat this summer and taking it either at the end of the summer, or at some point relatively soon after. I'm currently finishing up my junior year undergrad. I'm a double engineering and mathematics major. For me, medical school was always something in the way back of my mind. I wasn't going to commit to it because I didn't want a straight science major that would leave me nowhere if I didn't get in, and through the stupidity of being a freshman my GPA wasn't too great. This school year has been absolute hell. I've gone on credit overload both semester and taken an internship. I have absolutely no life. Whats the result of all of this? My GPA is higher than ever, up around 3.4 something now. My GPA fall semester was 3.8, and I don't have all my final grades yet but this one should be just as high. Which brings me to here. I recently got the stupid idea into my head "Hey, why don't I study the MCAT this summer"? I don't know about anything regarding my future anymore, but I feel like if I don't at least try its going to be something I regret. For my majors I've taken all the premed classes except for biology, which I was going to take next year anyway just to get some bio experience. Should I really bother with this? I doubt I'd have a real chance getting into med school (allopathic or osteopathic) anyway since there really isn't much on my resume, even though I feel like I've worked my *** off the past three years. I was thinking about buying the examkrackers review package (http://www.amazon.com/Examkrackers-Mcat-Complete-Study-Package/dp/1893858499/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1210540381&sr=8-1) and studying it throughout the course of the summer. I have the discipline to put the work in over the summer (past two summers I've taken classes while simultaneously working full time), but is all the study and frustration and time requirements going to prove beneficial at all, or would I be better spending it taking some course or just studying engineering over the summer to keep it fresh? I know these really aren't questions anyone else can answer, I'm just looking for maybe a little feedback or similar stories/experiences or something. I just feel really confused now.
