  1. Neurophiliac is right, MCATs usually open up around the deadlines to change (gold, silver, bronze). I would say you should start preparing for a rewrite just in case, at least start cramming for CARS since that section takes the longest to prepare for. If you would like some advice on CARS pm me.
  2. I am purchasing the Uworld 3 month subscription. I will be using it for the month of March and writing April 6th. The subscription will be good till the beginning of June. PM me if you're interested in saving some money on one of the best resources next to the AAMC material!
  3. I guess I'm just curious how worthwhile you think it is to rewrite in the hopes of improving my score to a 514+
  4. You're right, my main focus is UBC as I am an in province applicant (I haven't even thought about other schools). I am okay with the time commitment as its only another month and I am feeling confident in my abilities/ not too stressed out. My parents are able to help me with finances. Again its only the blasted CARS section that has me feeling low and the feeling that I could have done better with more sleep/less stress. I am prepared to study some more and do heavy review focusing on those sections. I've already done all AAMC practice tests so I'm going to use them more as mock section banks and for review.
  5. Hey everyone. I've been hunting for some advice on retaking the MCAT. I just wrote the test and scored a 511 // 128/126/131/126 // During my practice tests I was scoring a 514. Both CARS and PS have continually been my lowest section but I feel I can improve on my score for this cycle. I barely got any sleep and was super stressed out due to a long distance relationship. My oGPA is 85%, I am an older applicant (27) with lots of work experience, I've been volunteering at an addictions centre and a retirement home for 2+ years, with various other volunteer commitments. I am thinking about rewriting in April, while everything is still fresh.
