I feel like crying.

Just 2 weeks left until the MCAT.

Anxiety is already building up. *sigh*

Oh yeah. Time to start hyperventilating. Yikes.

I've never really been so nervous about a test I've studied so hard for. And I really am nervous. Every time I think about it, my heart starts racing. No room for error.

I'm so exhausted from studying. Even my voice is weak at the end of everyday -- no energy. I'm tired. I've been studying at least 8hrs everyday for the last few weeks. *sigh* The only way I've gotten through it has been caffeine in the A.M. and mental health breaks throughout the day...

So much pressure. Tears are now flowing. :'( And the sad part about it is that I can't show anyone around here, otherwise they'll get worried and they won't be happy, which will make me unhappy etc.. etc..

I plan on taking the last few days before the MCAT off just to get energized and to de-stress.

I just want this thing to be over already. I want to enjoy my summer, and I am SO looking forward to the days after Sept. 2nd. :'(

What do you mean by that? What should I add it to?

Wow, I know how that feels like.

Just a little bit of advice that I've learned: you should take a break before the exam. Just keep studying, but during the night before the exam do NOT touch anything MCAT related. Clear your mind. Do other stuff. Let everything you've studied organize itself in your brain. It needs time to get things in order. Sleep, watch tv, or just relax. DO NOT CRUNCH ANYTHING THE NIGHT BEFORE. NO LAST MINUTE CRUNCHING!!! It'll hurt you more than help you. You should get all of your studying done by the 4 or 6 pm the night before.

Make sure to eat something healthy for breakfast on the day of the exam (and dinner before hand would be good too). Get plenty of rest before the exam as well. It sounds like you've worked really hard for this.

Just give it your best shot, and don't look back. Regret nothing. It's late, and I don't have the time or correct state of mind to write anything eloquent or uplifting, so I'll leave you with that.

By the way, do you think I should have caffeine with my breakfast before the test? It's at 8am and about 5.5 hrs long.

I'm a little hesitant. If I have caffeine with breakfast, I will be focused, but I'm afraid that I won't be able to concentrate at all at the end of the test when the caffeine wears off. If I don't have caffeine, I won't be as "energized" but I won't have the withdrawal effect of the caffeine wearing off.

Hmmm....

Go with 5 shots of the espresso. It should be enough to keep you going at least 6 hours. Can you bring drinks to drink during breaks?
