    Summary of Application Experience


    I was a bit late on the primary app at 8/15/2010 but we shall see what happens. It didn\'t matter too much being that I did not take the MCAT until September. My plan is to see what kind of responses I get for this first attempt. If I can land a spot at NYCOM or UMDNJ chances are I will take it and run. If not, I\'m taking another run at the MCAT (which I am studying for AGAIN already) as well as enrolling in a post-bacc program where I will take upper level science courses with one or two repeats. That said, I will also do both of the above if I have not received an acceptance from those either of the 2 schools by the time mid-January rolls around. Being that I am a bit late in the cycle, chances are I will be writing the MCAT again and kicking the GPA up in the classroom. I will apply M.D. next cycle if I can get myself a 35+ MCAT, which is definitely possible with a better approach to my preparation.

    Prediction on my last MCAT... 28R. Not enough passage practice during preparation. Content review alone leads to false security. Guess we\'ll have to wait and see the scores. Real test seemed way harder than AAMC. Averaging a 30.

    Hopefully I\'ll be reporting some invites by the time Christmas rolls around. I\'d say Santa Baby, but I\'m a dude, so... yeah...
