This is my first post/thread so hear me out. I just finished my sophmore year at Cal State Northridge and since completing this last semester I've been super stressed on my position as a premed student. I'll be going into my junior year with a 3.8ish GPA, but no particular experince in the field. I would assume many of you agree that attaining the average GPA's med schools admit are fairly feasible, but what I'd like to know is, if scoring the average MCAT scores (31+) are just as possible or is it as hard as many make it out to be? I do plan on taking prep courses, test, aids...., but I don't know why I feel like it's going to be really difficult. I'm not a dumb/lazy guy, I just got freaked out when I looked at the amount of accepted students with 36+ MCAT scores and a bunch of people saying how hard it was. What do you think? Did you go through an anxiety phase? What can I do in terms of experience? Appreciate it.
