2-Month Study Plan:
Procrastinator

Mina wants to apply to schools this cycle, even though she doesn’t have quite as much time as she would like to prepare for the MCAT. She plans to study for 2 months, 37.5 hours per week, as if it were a full time job, and to temporarily shut down both her social life and her Netflix account.  

For practice materials, Mina decides to purchase the following AAMC resources: Official Guide Qs, Section Bank, and both Practice Tests (Total cost of FastPass & AAMC resources = $504.95).
