I haven't taken Physics yet either, I am taking it Winter quater and Spring quarter. I will be into my third term of general chemistry by that time.
Thank you for your honesty. After reading my own posting and your responses I realize how silly it is to think I might be able to pull off taking the exam without having taken organic chemistry, but I have this weird over-zealous complex that makes me think I am superwoman and I can do
! Before deciding to pursue medicine I was pursuing nursing school (and I got in) but before getting in I took some nursing school entrance exams like the HESI, which I scored very well on... and I hadn't taken anatomy and physiology or chemistry yet (which were large portions of the exam) but I read A & P texts and studied really hard before those tests...that being said
I totally get that the HESI exam and the MCAT are totally and completely different.
I really appreciated your input. You are both right, I know. I am just so anixious, you nailed it with, "impatient," because I am! I am ready to be applying to schools, getting the ball rolling, and getting into med school. I have worked in a hospital for the last three years, and while yes, I really enjoy my work...it's not what I want to do for the rest of my life. Being a physician is.
Another year will give me time to do more practice MCATs, get more volunteer hours and EC involvement, and even more healthcare experience to boost my app that much more. you're so right.
thank you for responding and being honest!
