Moving MCAT from July 7th to July 23rd

    This is the text I sent my friend for advice any help would be appreciated because I am completely lost.



    "I need some legit advice. I feel like I can get a 129 in BB, a 130 in PS, and a 129-130 in cars if I get more time to practice.

    - I’m always 1 point away from a 129 in BB, if I take time to redo the section bank and actually learn the metabolic pathways I think I can break a 130 (my content is very lacking because I prioritized practice over content heavily and honestly, was just shooting for around a 127-128)

    - for PS I’m always 1 pt away from a 129 and always miss like 2-3 questions because of content if I re-go through the 80-page doc I feel like I can push the 129-130 range because I am usually missing discrete and pseudo discrete

    Therefore, I think I should rewatch the khan academy and redo Uworld to push myself into the 129-130 range

    - for cars, I keep messing up the timing, so I think I need more practice. There is no way in **** I should be scoring below a 129 on this section because of how well I did on the practice LSAT materials (always in the high 90th percentile for reading comprehension)

    My plan is to push back my exam to the 23rd and take one week to do the pure practice. Then take the last two full-lengths next two weeks. I don’t know how much this would mess up my app. But at this point, I feel like I’m wasting my potential to get around a 513- 515 and settling for 509-511 score range. "
    - if I move my MCAT to July 7th, I am planning on sending my primaries on July 15th
    - If I move my mcat to the 23rd I will submit on the 31st

    I was originally planning on applying mostly DO but think I will try and shot for MD now. Do yall think it would be worth it to move to the 23rd. Or will the about 2 week difference hurt my chances significantly

      Only you know this. If you actually use those additional 2 weeks to really hammer away at your weaknesses, then it would be highly beneficial. The July 23rd MCAT release date is August 6th. You'll be fine for DO school applications as far as timing goes. Can't really say much about MD, some say you're okay, some say you are slightly at a disadvantage, or are complete doomers and say you're out of luck. It's a strange time. Do what's best for you.
