In Aug-Nov ...study MCAT with Princeton Review
Nov-Jan take princeton Review Online course.

After MCAT become a tutor for MCAT or for science courses.
Any thoughts.

I have about 200 hrs of volunteering.. I am will not have time for more.
---was a mentor, an interpreter of Haitian Creole at a free health clinic, nursing home, and random uni events.

I have a 3.699 now and will probably graduate with a 3.7 hopefully.

I am also a URM--black female american born with Caribbean parents and live in south Florida.

So this summer I plan to start studying the verbal mcat with Examkrackers 101.

I can't speak for everyone, but I found Examkrackers to be awful for MCAT verbal. Their questions were nothing like the actual verbal questions on the practice tests, and their books had all sorts of typos. I highly recommend Kaplan over them- it's very similar to the real test.

Then after I take the mcat to do research and get any job preferably a tutor.......

It may sound crazy, but try getting a job now as a MCAT trainer. EK is always looking for people and you be surprised; might as well get paid for preppin. You certainly get good an MCAT by teaching a class. Send me a PM and i can put you in touch in with someone (No I don't work for EK or get any referral fees)

Ironically, I would agree with that the questions are not the best, yet a few ideas from the now dated audio osmosis were by far the best help for verbal as well as the rest of the MCAT. to paraphrase the reason why students dont finish the MCAT is because they dont finish. Basically, timing and and discipline on timing. There is absolutely no reason for running out of time. You need to have a set limit on time per question , eliminate what you answers you can and guess by that time, then move on. Also, never go back to passage. answer will not be there.
