    Just wanted to know how the recent MCATers coped with classes this semester. I was taking 19 hrs and was very afraid on how to prepare for the MCAT considering other involvements.

    So far I have to catch up in diff. equations, botany and genetics for the finals. other classes like zoology and organic II went very fine.

    How are others doing, or how did you do it? Just want to know how we all managed.

    Life is great now. I walk very slowly everywhere now. Even though I still have papers and exams left, I feel like I have SO much time. I love it. I hope everyone is enjoying their post-MCAT time.

    Definitely a huge weight off the shoulders with MCAT over. 2 finals done this week, 2 more next week, and all done on May 3rd. Can't wait :)

    I'm starting to hit midterms, but considering that I put so much time into studying for the MCAT last quarter and still pulled off good grades, I'm not too worried. I love having so much more free time. I even get to play on two soccer teams! :D

    My school is on the quarter system. It is the end of third week (out of 10). I finish June 14-ish. It totally depends on the school. I am kind of glad about school getting out so late right now because it will keep my mind from worrying about my MCAT scores. :laugh:

    Oh really? Okay that's cool. Just really different from what we have up here (Ontario) where all the universities are having exams right now and we're all pretty much done in a week or two.
    So you guys have 40 weeks of classes in total? Wow

    Nuel, I hear you with Genetics. I am taking a 5 credit genetics course and it is a ball-buster! :eek: Plus, I am doing Honors research, and an upper-level philosophy course. 16 credits that feel like 20. :eek: I put a lot of it on hold for the MCAT, but now it is time to pay the piper.

    Sincerely,
    D. melanogaster

    It is actually 30 weeks of classes. 10 in the fall, 10 in the winter, and 10 in the spring. The term "quarter" is misleading. We do get out late, but we also start very late (September 27 this year).

    I have a research paper, project, presentation, lab report, and some random homeworks due next week (last week of classes). Great fun. But on the bright side, I'll be done, done done, completely done in 3 weeks.

    school? what school? i had a paper and 2 exams this week. But i felt like i deserved a break. so i wrote the paper the morning it was due, and studied for my 2 exams that were on the same day the night b4. Talk about total nonchalance. My stress levels are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay down now.

    Sal's got her life back ;) :cool: :D :) :love: :thumbup:
