(But surely Jess, you must have some idea as to which circle of hell you've gallantly thrown yourself into!) Uh, no, no I don't.
I was under the misconception that as soon as I returned home in May 2009, I would have enough time to prep for the MCAT,
The application process for medical school begins June 1st. And you know that awful, awful saying "the early bird gets the worm?" It is an apt saying about the medical school application process. Hell, it's not even about being early. It's more like throw yourself at the first school that will even pretend to listen and we're off!
Back to what I was saying, I may have to start prepping for the MCAT while I'm here (studying my ass off). School + MCAT prep (at the same time) = Jessica. Dead.
Okay, okay, enough dramatics.
Here are the facts: 75% of medical schools are rolling admissions. If I take the MCAT prep course over the summer, I would take the test in September. Scores come out up to 30 days after the test. Therefore, I'm pretty much going to the be last bird up or last person hobbling to the finish line, whichever metaphor you prefer.
Oh, and who the hell told Kaplan it was okay to charge $1849 for a prep course? Hmm? I would really like to know.
