MCAT - 1st attempt done

So I just finished writing the MCAT. It went as well as expected (i.e. terribly).

That being said...I feel surprisingly good right now. I feel proud of myself for actually doing it - actually writing the MCAT. And even though doing those questions that I clearly didn't know the answers to most, I did understand for the most part what was being asked - which is a huge improvement. I remember when I did my first practice exam, I literally had no clue what was going on. None of the questions made any sense to me and I would guess them all. I was especially surprised at myself regarding the chemistry questions - I was actually able to work through them and I think get the right answer.

I'm mostly a little worried about the verbal section since I got stuck on a really hard passage and then ended up having to guess on one completely (and it looked easier) but I guess we'll see. Also because I really have no excuse to do badly in verbal. I'll be honest - I'll be very disappointed if I get anything lower than a 10 in verbal.

I was a little tempted to void my score when I got to the end, and I DID hesitate for a second - but I still want to KNOW how I did and see where I stand, so I didn't. Anyway, I'll find out in 30 days.

Now I'm going to go out for dinner with friends, forget about everything and hope for the best.


  1. You never know! I thought I did terribly, and it all worked out in the end! I pretty much just guessed for half of the physical section and ended up with a 9... Don't lose hope!

  2. I truly believe that if you want to become an md and serve the public without being interested in money, God will pave the path for you!!!

    Good luck
