MDtoBe, I'm sure we all feel your pain. I'm only taking 12 credits but I'm still finding it hard to balance everything. I just keep telling myself, I rather study hard now and do well the first time so I don't have to worry about it this summer.MDtoBe777 said:I'm just posting cuz I need to vent. It's so hard studying for the MCAT while balancing course work. Anyone else finding it hard to devote enough time to the MCAT this semester?
hey,DoctorSaab said:I have no freaking time for the MCATs. However, whatever free time I get, I figured its useless to review the material now. So in the free time, I just do practice problems. I don't care what happens in April. If it goes bad, I will just study in the summer for August MCATs.
Salam Chaeymay, are you persian? I saw that your name was Maryam, so I thought maybe you were.chaeymaey said:I totally hear you! I'm taking 19 hrs at three colleges, working 10-15 hrs a week as a scribe at a hospital (the 6:30 am shift), and taking TPR 9 hrs a week on weekends. I'm literally in class 7 days/wk! People with crazy shedules like us need a place to vent. I think it's smart to spend more time on passages than review because you do enough of that in class and when you go over the passages afterwards.
Salam, yes I am Persian. That's so cool that you're dating a Persian guy, you lucky lady you. I started a thread on Persian Premeds a while ago if you want to check it out. Do you live in LA? I'm in Dallas, but it seems like all the Persians on SDN live in LA.kcernak said:Salam Chaeymay, are you persian? I saw that your name was Maryam, so I thought maybe you were.
I am not persian but my boyfriend is, and I am *trying* to learn farsi.

But i changed my ways, I sleep really early I get up around 4 or 5 each morning and I get so much more work done, im not distracted usually I can get 30 - 45 minutes in the gym 2 and I don't have to hear my neighbor's music
