So it's been asked in a few threads on whether or not it is smart to study for the MCAT and be a full time student. However, one distinct difference in those threads and mine is that I don't work at all, I do not have any other obligations this semester. It will be one of my easier semesters (12 hours) in Biochem, org II lab, Spanish I, and philosophy. I have been using the SN2ed study method for the last two weeks and school starts in a week. I want to take the MCAT at the beginning of April. I am just wondering whether or not it is a feasible plan, will I have enough time to pull off all A's in my courses, and at the same time do well on the MCAT? Share what your experiences have been with this.

I studied for the MCAT this past semester, along with this winter break. Plan on taking it on January 25th. Over the semester I was taking 22 credits (14 credits were science). I didn't have any other commitments though - just classes and MCAT. I didn't get a 4.0 this semester but ended up with a 3.89. Feel pretty good about the MCAT too so far. It was definitely a lot of work but with good time management I think you can definitely pull it off.

Thanks for a quick reply. I've got it mostly scheduled (study MCAT during the day, classes at night, study for those classes after and during the weekend). I was just worried it would be an information overload!
