What did you do for MCAT preparation?Examcrackers and Kaplan subject books are amazing honestly. Please, do not waste your money on a course that costs 2000 dollars unless you have 0 motivation to study (which does happen, but it shouldn't take over your goal to get to med school). To do the best of the MCAT, I would recommend studying about 5-6 hours a day going over material that you are weak in and doing a 1000 practice questions. There's a 1001 questions in MCAT Biology, Physics, Verbal, and Chemistry that I found very useful. The most important resource is the AAMC practice tests. Use them very wisely and treat them as real tests.read other replies on this topic
