    Well seeing as how my score is lowering now and I've scored a 20 on two AAMC exams now

    I'm praying and planning to apply to DO schools now, thinking of maybe changing my career to another health field, maybe caribbean, my life is so miserable someone help me.

    Definitely doing the praying. I've decided that I don't care about school anymore, because all I have left to worry about is a paper due on Tuesday and a final the monday after the MCAT. Everything else is pretty much secured.

    Tomorrow, I'm doing hard core physics review for 2 hours, then taking another practice exam, then writing that paper. Then I get to chill for the rest of the night.

    Sunday I get to drive back from my mom's house, so I'll listen to AO on the way, then look at my paper some more and study, then chill again on Sunday night.

    Monday before O Chem I'm taking another practice exam (minus the writing section, since I'll only have about 4 hours). After O Chem, I study for genetics final on Tuesday and review some chem stuff.

    Tuesday, I take my genetics final, then do more physics studying, plus as many verbal passages as I can stand. Then I turn in that paper and hope for the best. I'm doing at least the PS and Verbal sections of a practice test.

    Wednesday I have my O Chem final, and then I'm taking my final practice exam, which will be an AAMC one.

    Thursday, I volunteer at the hospital, and listen to AO.

    Friday morning I sleep in, eat an early lunch, pray lots and lots and lots, and then go to face my doom.

    Remember to plan for enough time to review your practice exams....

    My plan's to take CBT 7-10 between tomorrow and Wednesday. I still have a lot of Kaplan section tests left, so if I have time in between, I'll do those. Also I plan on reviewing the kaplan flashcards.
    Thursday, the day before the test, I plan on studying in the morning (do some verbal) and review flashcards/notes, then have a really good, long workout, and then get a massage!!! Something to look forward to... :love:

    Ok, so I know everyone here is probably equally stressed, but does anyone have advice for me? My MCAT practices seemed to have peaked and tappered off on the last few:

    Kaplan 1 10-11-13 (34)
    Kaplan 2 11-11-13 (35)
    Kaplan 3 11-14-14 (39)
    Kaplan 4 10-11-12 (33)
    Kaplan 5 11-12-14 (37) This one I took 2 days ago

    AAMC 3 10-12-13 (35)
    AAMC 4 10-10-12 (32)
    AAMC 5 11-12-13 (36)
    AAMC 6 10-13-12 (35)
    AAMC 7 11-12-13 (36)
    AAMC 8 11-12-12 (34)
    AAMC 9 11-11-11 (33)
    AAMC 10 10-9-13 (32) TODAY :scared:

    when was your peak? Dates man. Tell me the dates of your exams. It could just be a fluke, the 32 you got today. jeez you hada high of a 36 and 39.

    Did you stop practicing verbal?

    Ok so if you really wanna know, i took my Kaplan tests mostly pretty early (March-April), except for FL 5, which i just took. The AAMC's are more recent, and I pretty much started 3 Mid-April and have been taking three a week since then. So I would say my peak was last thursday April 26th (and the 3 AAMC's i've taken since then have gone down 34-33-32...)

    As for VR, I think I just hit a rough patch? At least I hope so...I seem to be having difficulty narrowing down to the correct answer when I'm down to just two. I also can't seem to get above a 10-11 on Physical sciences even though that's what i've been practicing the most! Any suggestion for either or both?
