    Depends on which tests you're using. If to get to that 20 test mark you used subpar tests, it wouldn't be worth your time. Other than that, as long as you space out your tests to fit your schedule, you should be okay. Generally, people just take all of the AAMC FLs.

      I want to take AAMC 3-11, BR 1-7, and like GS 1-7. Some people on here say "at least take 15 FLs" but there are also others that take only 5 FLs and get a 37 on the MCAT. So I'm not sure...

      @ the above poster: I got a 33 on aamc 3 :/

        I'd recommend all of the AAMCs or a mix of AAMC and BR for about 8-10 tests.
