Thanks!

I'm buying 7 and 8 and yes, it's all a big rip off to me! :rolleyes:

How's it goin? I'm, focusing heavily on PS (Kaplan topicals, EK 1001 questiosn and review book, and the Conceptual Physics for reference text) and verbal for the next few weeks, while doing practice tests in BS in between. The EK verbal book (not the 101 passages) is already a HUGE help! :yes:

Thread's pretty quiet with the MCAT less than a month away. How's everybody doing? Me, I got a 26 on the first 2 EK mini MCAT's on Friday so I'm hoping I can continue to improve. I'm also behind in Physics since I'm going chapter by chapter through the Physics book I mentoned before (what a BIG, HUGE, TREMENDOUS help this has been. Why I didn't think of it before I'll NEVER know!!).

Chemistry, organic, and biology are just review but I'm a little behind in these too but not too worried. I work in verbal pretty much everyday since many schools weigh this are of the test more heavily than the others.

What about you guys???

Hey all, just thought I'd let you all know that I will not be taking the MCAT in August. I am not confident enough in such little time from when I got my April scores to study for August. It was a hard decision to make, but I would rather not retake it if Im not more certain that I could improve my scores significantly. As many of you know, I scored a 22N. PS 7 VR 7 BS 8. I didn't take a prep course, studied on my own, while taking 10 credits hours with 6 kids--which may have nothing to do with my score at all. I thought I studied well enough, but it must have not been. Anyway, good luck to you all!!!! :crossfingers:

I'm applying with the scores I have. The worst any school can tell me is no. I figured I would take my chances, and if it doesn't work out this year, yes, then I will retake it in April with less a class load.
