      I found TopProScore to be very helpful. Being able to take full length OATs helped me with my test-taking stamina. When I took the OAT Kaplan hadn't come-out with their OAT prep-course, or I would've done that in a heartbeat. But in the end, taking practice OATs is essential in my opinion, so get your hands on as many as you can! I got one from the OAT test taking service along with the OAT registration form also.

        i mean my stats are good i believe. i mean i dont have a 4.0 but im around ~ 3.2. but i have worked in an optical laboratory and for the last year i have been working/participating in an immunology research lab and i participated in an optomerty internship program. i believe that because of my extracurricular activies is that i have been granted at least 2 interviews and maybe my gpa has a little to do with it. i just have to do very well on my oat. so what do think?? do you agree with me?? also im proud of what i have done and what i have. =)

          Did you purchase 3 full lengths outside of what they provided you in your Kaplan materials? Because I think all the Kaplan stuff is more than what you'll need. It's tough even to go through the ginormous book and ALL the workshops and practice tests they have. My advice is, concentrate on the subjects/areas that you have a hard time with (you can get an idea after you took your diagnostic) and also consistently do the subject tests. If you manage to get through all the practice tests, I'm sure you'll do great. The fact that you've been granted interviews w/o OAT scores is already a good sign IMO.

            hey wendy, i wouldn't worry too much. i was offered interviews at neco, pco, and suny w/o oat scores. gpa and extracurriculars have a lot to do with being a good doctor, and the admissions at these schools knows that. just work hard, be focussed, and anything is possible. :thumbup:

                [hey wendy,
                can you tell me how you purchase those 3 full length exams seperate from the kaplan oat course? I have been looking around and do not see how you can order it without taking the kaplan OAT course..thanks
