    hey sdner's

    needing some advice.

    i have taken the mcat 2 times, 24 and then 26
    i applied for the upcoming medical school year and have been waitlisted

    should i start studying for the mcat for july so that i will have a better score when the next admission cylce rolls around

    taking it 3 times looks bad, \but i dont think that 26 will help that much either.

    thanks for the help

    you should start studying for the MCAT as far in advance as necessary to be adequately prepared. For some folks, that may be 2 weeks. For others, it may require 2 months.

    dont take it until you're averaging at least 30 on practice tests consistently... though, after taking it twice, you may have run out of practice tests...

    DO or carribean?

    im bumping this cuz im in a similar situation... is 2 months enough time to study for the mcat if you put approx 4-5hrs per day of studying? anyone take the computerized mcat?...did u find this tougher than the paper administration; trickier?in the sense that you felt you performed better than your actual mcat score, but really hadn't)...etc..any details would be appreciated:) :)

    thats plenty of time. 1 month with that many hours is enough time, IMO.

    most importantly, make sure you are making progress. if you aren't making progress, change your studying habits. take practice tests/sections repeatedily. g'luck.

    Exactly...people learn at different speeds, so what's more important is to measure your progress and ability by taking full-length tests (and take them under conditions similar to the real thing).
