Ok I have five minutes left to get ready before going to work, but I had to post this.

I got my PCAT scores back. I am such an idiot sometimes. Of course my parents still go through my mail, which is a huge annoyance cos I was searching high and low for mail the last few days and since I get off late on Fridays I can't get the mail. Anyways, so my dad comes down to my room at MIDNIGHT and hands me THE envelope.

I stare at it with disbelief and huge eyes, scared to death to open it. So I opened, already half asleep and exhausted from the day and week. Percentile scores, I was above the 80th percentile in everything except chemistry. I got a 89 in verbal, 81 percent in quantitative analysis (maths), 81 in reading comp, 80 in biology, and a 72 in chemistry. And 3's on both my essays. Overall I was in the 85th percentile. I think it was funny when it took me 5 minutes to realize composite meant overall (and I got an 89 in verbal how?) and squeed that I got above the 80th percentile.

Ok, WTF chemistry? I think it's because there was a lot of O-chem and I've always been terrible at that. And the bio? Come on, I was a biochem major! I know that's being hard on myself, these scores are fantastic (minus chem).

So now I have other stuff to freak out about. And now that I'm in some weird fight with my friend/coworker things are going to be interesting. Ugh. Why must some women be so crazy? Now I be late for work hahah.

Shea- eww you liked Organic chemistry??? Really?? hehe. My prof for o-chem hated women and said that women shouldn't be in science to the class. ahem. Also highest grade on the class was a C- I think? So everyone passed the class because he had to curve, otherwise everyone would fail (highest score on an exam was 27% once). Says something about his teaching doesn't it?

TSD- Thanks! It's a big relief. Now onto the wet-your-pants stage where you sit and wait for pharm schools.
