Results are in...

I got my MCAT score the night I returned from Italy. I got a 25-O: 8P, 8V, 9B, which is funny cause I thought I did the worst on the biological science section.

This was the score I was kind of worried about getting cause it's leaving me in limbo, yet again. It's not so low that I fold in the cards and do PA school, but not so great that I'm confident about getting in anywhere. My perfect GPA friend gets mad when I say something like this because she got a 20 on the MCAT and has to take it again. But I remind her that she has practically a perfect GPA. I need to remember to ask her if she would swap scenarios. That would be an interesting answer. My current GPA is about 3.1-3.2 cumulative and 3.0 science.

I'm hoping to have my applications done by next week once the grade from my abroad class is in. I have about 8 schools on the list right now, but I don't think I'm going to share what schools I'm applying to because lately it seems best to stay as private as possible in the medical blogging world.

I'll keep everyone updated, as always.

Whoa. Okay, being a dumb Brit I have no idea what that score means, but I hope it means good things. Though I guess we ALL get thrown into limbo at some point in our journeys to and through med school (I myself am going through such a time right now). So hang in there!

P.S. good call about the anonymity. Stay quiet and you won't be stalked.

P.P.S. Unless you WANT to be stalked, of course, in which case I needed an excuse to fly over to the States anyway.

I totally agree with the anonymi. If you feel that calling to be A Doctor ... ignoring it, stifling it, coming in second cuz you are scared to admit you neeeed to come in first ... will only lead to a life of regret. There is nothing worse than a life of regret.

I'm rooting for you!
