    Summary of Application Experience

    9/07-1/08: Studied for MCAT during the semester with on-line kaplan course.

    1/25/08: Took 1st MCAT (VR: 5 PS: 7 BS: 10 W: M)

    7/24/08: Verified by AMCAS

    8/20/08: Verified by AACOMAS

    8/21/08: Got MCAT scores back!! VR:8 PS:10 BS:9 W:M = 27M
    not the 30 I had hoped for, but I'm happy with it. This time around I didn't use kaplan's study methods because I only had 2 months to study. I used Exam Krackers audio osmosis, took practice tests every other day and reviewed each test right away. I studied the material I was weak in the days in between taking practice tests.

    9/3/08 - I've submitted 10 secondary applications so far, but I know I have to finish them quickly or it will be too hard to finish them as school starts!! And I want to send them in - I'm getting them in later than I expected!! I hope it is still early enough! I also can't believe how much this process is costing!!! I'm almost up to $5000!!!


    COSTS:

    $1400 - Kaplan online course
    $210 - January 2008 MCAT
    $60 - Hotel for MCAT
    $500 - Repeat Kaplan online course
    $210 - July 2008 MCAT
    $60 - Hotel for MCAT
    $460 - AMCAS
    $400 - AACOMAS
    $1396 - Secondary applications
    $82 - Sending letters via Interfolio
    $380- 1st Interview (flight,hotel,suit)
    --------
    $5158 - Total Costs (as of 11/08 - more $$ will be spent as more interview invites come in - hopefully!)
