Summary of Application Experience
I am currently a teacher for an MCAT prep company and have decided that I will re-take the MCAT because I know I can kill it as long as I keep my Verbal Score up (yay for employee discount). Hoping amazing MCAT score will off set my crap GPA more than my current above average score.
SO looking forward to re-writing my personal statement for the 20th time...
Good luck to everyone! Let me know if I can help out in anyway, and comments/suggestions are always welcome.
