MCAT Countdown!

If you've taken a look at my blog in the last week or so, you may have noticed a new graphic in the upper-right-hand corner: a "ticker" counting down the days until I take the MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test).

That's right, it's official! I'm taking the MCAT at 1 p.m. sharp on April 28, 2012 at a testing center in the Western suburbs. Which, according to today's ticker, is exactly 5 months and 5 days away.

As I move along in this process, this whole thing - my dream - is becoming more real. I finish the next-to-last semester of my post-bac pre-medical program this December. This coming spring semester IS my last semester of post-bac classes. I take the MCAT in late April. I will apply to medical school early next June - just over 6 months away. And hopefully by this time next year, I will have been interviewing at medical schools, or will have interviews lined up. Crazy. But oh-so exciting.

To all of you who are supporting me on this journey - thank you, and happy Thanksgiving.


  1. Congrats on getting registered for the MCAT! I'm predicting that this time next year, the question you'll be asking yourself is which of the schools I'm accepted to, should I attend!

  2. Thanks, Path201X! I'm hoping for the same thing! :)

  3. Most students who take their MCAT review don’t just fail the writing section; they completely bomb it. That’s because one of the biggest MCAT practice blunders is not taking the writing section of the MCAT prep seriously.
