6 A.M.

With less than 3 weeks to go before the test date, I decided to start getting my body adjusted to waking up really early. I am taking the MCAT at 8 in the morning, which requires I get up at like 6 am to shower, eat breakfast and have coffee, drive to the testing center, and freak out.  Anyways, today I got up at 6, and am now just sort of a zombie, watching SportsCenter....I'm tired.  On the MCAT front, for the most part, my content review is completely over, and I am just doing practice tests and then really reviewing each question and answer. I cannot tell you all how excited I am to be done with this test.  I know that waiting a month for test scores to come back is probably going to suck, but at least I will be done with all the studying, and I can enjoy my last three weeks of the semester.  I don't know how I would've handled everything this semester if I was taking a full, intense course load.  There is no way I could put this much effort into MCAT preparation.  My advice, take the MCAT when you can handle 3-4 hours of studying everyday for 2-3 months.  If you are taking Organic Chemistry, Biochem, Nuclear Physics, and Nobel Prize 101 all at the same time with labs, then you probably won't have the time or energy to put everything into your test prep.  I don't know why anyone would risk taking the MCAT (weighed roughly the same as 3 years worth of G.P.A to admissions committees) without first committing large amounts of time to it.
