    Good luck, y'all! Remember: the MCAT rewards sacrifice and suffering--all your studying will pay off on Saturday (the MCAT deity is a just being) :D

    eat trail mix and mixed nuts at every break and pee whenever possible! I am always hungry and the nuts really kept me feeling full during the test!
    Good luck! Don't even think about the practice tests you took (unless they were high) because I scored >5 points better on the real deal than any of my practice tests!

    Thank you so much for the encouragement guys! Goodness knows we stressed out little MCATers need all the encouragement and support we can get right now. Any last minute words of advice for you seasoned veterans out there? ;)

    Do you mind sharing when was the date of the April MCAT last year (2003), and when exactly did you see your results? I am planning on applying on June 1 this year, and would want to know my MCAT scores before I apply.

    good luck with the MCATs!

    try your best, and relax and have fun afterwards~ :clap:

    last year's mcat was april 26th, you can go online to access the results around the 2nd or 3rd week of June. then the results come by snail mail about a week after that.

    ..man, i still recall the longest, teasing, terrifying seconds as the browser slowly loads the text and graphics on the results page....

    BREATHE!

    don't study the nighte before, you aren't going to learn anything . . . personally I kicked my family out of the house, made myself some comfort food (dirty rice if my memore serves me right) and watched Patch Adams.

    most prep classes tell you to read something in the morning to jog your brain, try a fiction book or something along those lines (gets your brain moving and distracts enough to calm you down).

    GOOD LUCK!

    Don't do anything different than you are used to(food- and drink-wise) except score better. :D It will srew you up. Just go in and say "It's just a diag, it's just a diag!" That will take some of the pressure off... ;)

    Highly recommend doing this. It will warm your brain up, so to speak. Newspaper, magazine, anything, just get your verbal reasoning neurons warmed up. You don't want to fire-em cold and 'cramp' your neurons. ;)

    The MCAT was April 26, 2003 and I believe that the scores went up on the AAMC website on June 18, 2003. I received my scores in the mail about a week later. Hope that helps and best of luck to all of you!!!

    Thanks for the best wishes ...... I hope the MCAT Gods can pull my VR score just a little bit to 9 and let the other scores be at my 6R level

    thanks again ppl

    :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
     
  22. Rest up, get a good night's sleep before the test. I used to always doubt this, having pulled many all-nighters before final exams during college...but rest is definitely important. This is not an exam you cram for, anyway. 8 hours is a long time!

    Best of Luck everyone! And don't let it rattle you if you feel unsettled or think you did badly after each section-- the MCAT is designed to make you feel this way (especially the verbal section). once you finish a section, forget about it. The most important thing is to remain focused on the present passage/question/essay. I think the MCAT is a stress test as much as a test of knowledge/thinking skills, and if you go in with this in mind, you're certain to rise to the occasion.

    Good luck on Saturday to all from everyone here at NAU. (I know...where's that? It's in Flagstaff, AZ...one of the many reasons I'm worried about getting in anywhere.) I plan to sleep and bring plenty of Gatorade.

    this may have been mentioned already....dress in layers, so you can add/subtract if you have to......my room started off FREEZING (partly due to the nervous shaking I guess) but then got pretty warm as the day continued...

    someone replied to my eating comments not to eat anything unusual...or break up any eating routines...I agree with this 100%..you don't want to eat that super cereal or drink that power drink the day of the test if you are not used to eating/drinking them....

    BE CONFIDENT! Know that you are going to kick butt!
    Good luck!
