TL/DR: studying for DAT - should I just retake MCAT again while I'm at it? Scored well enough (510-512) and got interview with UBC MED. Planning in advance in case of rejection. Hey everyone. So I am waiting to hear back from UBC for this year but in the meantime I'm planning my next year in case I don't make it this year...(planning a full year of courses 2017-18 and maybe retake MCAT this summer). I am also considering applying to dentistry to see where that might get me but I've never taken the DAT... so in light of realizing I will have to study very similar material to the MCAT again it has got me thinking... should I just retake? I scored 510-512 (being vague-ish). I took my mcat on 2 hrs of sleep (pet was violently sick all night) but I don't know how that affected me overall. I suppose if I really went to town again on studying (and slept! ) I could get a better score but I don't want to risk a poorer score. It would be my undoing. Had I scored a 500 I believe I would have retaken right away. I'm almost in that sweet spot where it's kind of a risk to retake. At this point I have only taken the MCAT once. Thoughts?
DukeStukov posted a topic in General Premed DiscussionsHey guys, I really need some help/tips/advice. Ok so, I wrote the MCAT this September, and I did pretty bad. Now with the sciences, I think I can prepare that on my own, but I really need help with the CARS section. My situation: I got 125 in the CARS section. I will be writing the MCAT again in August of next year. I have 1 year essentially, (I am also doing university this year, full-time; but I will also have the 4 months of summer to essentially work on the MCAT). How should I practice/prepare for the CARS, to make it 128+? Should I be reading a lot? What should I read? Should I do practice passages every day? I am usually getting like 1-2 wrong per passage; I am not sure how to clear/cross the threshold to start getting 0-1 wrong per passage. Even if I have the best passage and I feel really good on it, I will always have at least 1 wrong. Did you guys have that? How did you guys fix it? Thanks again for your guidance,
