Hi everyone. I just wanted to receive some comments regarding my situation. I'm a third-year, pre-med "supposedly" getting ready to apply this summer for the 2008 application cycle. I use the quotations, because I'm not sure where the next two months are going to take me. My credentials to enter medical school are excellent: great letters of recommendation, grades, extracurriculars, you name it. The only problem (and a huge one) I'm having is the MCAT. I'm scheduled to take the exam in May for the first time, but my practice scores as of now are horrible. I've been studying already for quite awhile and I realize there are many more practice exams for me to take. When I say horrible scores, though, I mean low to mid 20s. With all my studying and new testing strategies (Examkrackers in particular), shouldn't I be scoring much better? It's completely disheartening to think a test may prevent me from reaching my goal. Most of all, I'm afraid that I'm going to need to back out of taking it in May. I guess this is the usual pre-med predicament - whether to go into the exam praying for a miracle, or backing out until ready (but possibly having a decreased opportunity to get admitted if applying late). What do you guys think? Any strategies on how to improve MCAT scores significantly? Let me know. Thanks!!!
