The difference between a 35 and a 38 probably isn't more than a few questions each section. When you're scoring that high, there is a bit of luck involved as far as the types of passages you get. In other words, I wouldn't walk in assured of scoring a 38 or better because you scored 35-38 on a few aamcas practice tests...but it should be around there +/- a few points depending on the types of questions you get. When I was practicing excessively for last summer's mcat, I would usually get 33-34 on my kaplan and aamc tests, but on the real thing, I got lucky and wound up scoring a few points higher because I didn't get much ochem and a lot of physiology. Perhaps others will chime in, although I have a feeling you'll get a wide range of answers.
