    Yeah of course! I did some math and put some numbers together, carefully calculating and weighting every question I could remember from the exam. From this, I realized I got over 100% on every section (~61/59, 62/59, 69/53, 420/59) and have at least a minimum of a 533. I've checked it over a few times and the math checks out every time.

    Yup. (I’ve been to busy to comment on this thread) Yay premed! Or like...ochem II exams: You have motor oil, a fork, cheese whiz and a chuckle doll. What reagents do you add to make a Pizza Hut? Don’t forget stereo chemistry...

    Probably too late as I bet you were in the 25th crew, but I just figured I wasn’t going to take anything with me and locked everything but water and a snack in the car.

    I'm glad we find out Friday b/c if I found out during the week, my productivity would be lost and I'd fall so far behind in all my classes...atleast I'll have a weekend to go into isolation once I see my crappy score and then can party it off!

    What did you guys do to celebrate after you finished the MCAT? I got take-out from my favorite stir-fry restaurant and ate it in bed while watching 8 hours of Game of Thrones. I also shamelessly drank 2 bottles of wine. Woke up the next morning feeling like a fat POS :D

    Tried to nap but ended up sleeping for like 10 min because of all of the adrenaline. Then proceeded to blow $100 on a steak dinner with my wife. No regrets though

    I ate a whole buffalo chicken pizza while watching The Lord of The Rings, for the first time. I later regretted eating the pizza, then I regretted the questions which I knew I missed on my test haha.

    I walked out of my testing center and across the street to Starbucks where I splurged on a giant latte. Then waited for my friends to get out of work while eating chips & guac and ruminating about questions I had no clue about. Once they were out, we met up and immediately went to a bar for the next 5+ hours. It was great, and I'm usually not one for drinking but MAN did I need it.

    Quite scared to be honest. I know it’s still early in reference to the application cycle but it really would make my life a hell of a lot easier if I didn’t have to take this stupid test again. Anything around a 507 -510 would be incredible. I truly have no idea what my score will be.

    I went out for a very nice dinner with my roommates/friends. =)

    Then, jumped right into work. I had a big due day within 5 days after the test day, and had to respond all the emails from my colleagues that I had not replied for a week....

    I will plan another celebration after the day I get my scores back, REGARDLESS my scores. At least I got through the round 1. If I don't need a round 2, of course, I will celebrate that I have a go. If I need a round 2, then, I need some incentive for doing so. And, the good thing is, that day (27th) I will be in Bangkok (business trip). <3 I will treat myself a super big meal and do a (girls) night out with my colleagues.

    Reading last year’s January mcat thread was kind of therapeutic. Everyone then was feeling the same way we are now and their scores turned out fine. In fact lots of them scored at or above their average score. Only 1 that I saw scored more than 3 points lower than their practice scores and it was still a solid 508. Also sounded like the test was similar to ours with respect to the difficulty of each section.

    I just want to not retake it(really really hoping this happens cause post-test day analysis about my score was awful). Just like georgia boy was saying, I really do not want to take this test again.

    Dude, that is a huge range! What was your feeling immediately after the exam? I personally got wrecked by C/P. I had to randomly select 6-7 answers towards the end because I was running out of time, and its been killing me ever since. I just hope I can get a score good enough to not retake.

    AAMC practice exams ranged from 505-508, praying for at least 505, but expecting a score between 498-500. :(

    512. I was with the 1/25 crew and felt like I got wrecked by CARS and B/B. I'm calling it as a 130/126/127/129. But tbh I wouldn't be surprised by any number from 507-520.

    I’m getting pretty sick of cycling between feeling like a super confident 520+ scorer, and a 500- scorer.

    I’m assuming if they say the scores are released by 2/23 at 5:00 then they will be released that day. Is it possible they’ll be released before 2/23? Or will it certainly be on 2/23?

    Going to come down to my cars score and psych but I'm predicting 515/516. 518 would be amazing and 520 would be like out of this world. Who knows though man. I think you'll get around 522 to 525! Calling it now for you

    Averaged 510 on the practice AAMCs but didn't sleep the night before the test so I'll take a guess. 507? (admittedly still feels like an optimistic reach score for how it feels)
