    hey guys...i just wanted to vent a lil bit. so, guess who missed the registration deadline for august mcat?..yeah yeah yeah, i know..WHAT WAS I THINKING?? anyways, it is over and done with now. i can go to london and take it though. for some reason the registration there is still open. but then i have ot think about all of the money my parents will spend on that and WHAT IF I DON'T DO WELL?..a big watse...also, now that it seems that i have a year off i have been looking at other options and it seems kinda exciting. i would love to get some experience somewhere..i mean, really, this is my last chance for that. i was thinking maybe an emt or something in that field but that takes 9 months of training itself. really, i was kind of looking for some outside opinions? what would you do in my situation?

      In addition to the possible screwups with the computerized version, I have always heard that you think somewhat differently when taking a computerized test vs a written test. If you do try to take it in London, I would get my hands on some computerized practice if I were you, good luck!

        Also, what sort of field were you thinking of for getting experience in? There are tons of different things to do - Americorps/Teach for America, volunteer with Doctors without borders, clinical research, lab research, habitat for humanity and so on. What field exactly - medicine/research/or other?!?

          i ask about the standy-by deal. she nearly laughed at me..:rolleyes: ..oh well. right now i am having horrible luck finding information about the London test. The registration number they gave on the aamc website appears to be incorrect. what the hell is the deal with the "+"?...the operator couldn't even tell me. teh country code is wrong, and it should be a 10 digit number. +pissed+ admit it....the whole world is out to frustrate me!!..lol

          btw, that was a good point about the problems with the computerized testing. it wouldn't be my first choice, but it may be my only choice.

          thank you guys

            Hi Becca. You are not the only one. I also messed up with my MCAT registration and I will be flying to London for August 17th. I am travelling from San Francisco on Tuesday 13th to try to get some of the jet lag issues taken care of and flying home on Sunday the 18th. I have heard that the central London test is full but that there is a site in Twickenham, "20 minutes away by car supposedly" that still has places. I have not been able to reach any of the people at Twickenham to find out their exact location but from what I have been able to gather it is about an hour subway ride fron central London. Oh well, beggars can't be choosers I suppose. :)
