Taking The Mcat - Rate My Stack
I am taking the MCAT on Friday. This is the new Medical College Admissions Test and it is a beast! It is 7.5hrs hours long, and tests every subject you can think of: General Biology, General Chemistry, General Physics, Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills, Psychology, and Sociology, split into 4 sections. I am not making this stuff up. To make matters worse, nothing is allowed in the examination room, not even water, but there are 15 minute breaks between sections where you are allowed to go to your locker. Considering this, and since I have seen no one mention the MCAT on the forums, this post is to advise any future bulletproofer tackling the MCAT, but also to receive some critique myself before I take the exam on Friday.
That said, I am not a newbie biohacker, and have been at this game for a while. I possess a range of Nootropics that I have used at least 5x each and up to 200x for the last few years: e.g.
Modafinil and Armodafinil
Aniracetam, Oxiracetam, Pramiracteam
ALCAR, Centrophenoxine, Alpha GPC, CDP Choline, Phosphatidyl Serine(PS)
L-Theanine, Sulbutiamine, N-Acetyl Tyrosine
Nicotine (pixotine sticks)
Bacopa Monnieri, Rhodiola Rosea, Ashwagandha, Cordyceps
That being said, for this beast of an exam, I am planning to begin my morning at 6 am (exam starts at 8am). I will be taking 100mg of Armodafinil as soon as I wake up along with 750mg Oxiracetam, 1000mg ALCAR, 500mg Rhodiola Rosea, and 1 Gabawave. These are all typically best consumed on an empty stomach with water as I understand it.
1 hour before the exam, at 7:00am, I will be brewing my bulletproof coffee with 1 tbls of sugar, 3tbls MCT, 3tbls butter, and putting it in stainless steel, insulated travel mug. I will then take 200mg Sulbutiamine, 750mg Aniracetam, Cordyceps tea, PS, and CILTEP, along with vitamins A, D, K2, Methylcobalamin 5mg, and 5MTHF 800, and a few sips of the BPC to aid absorption. The rest of my BPC I shall keep in locker.
Right before the exam begins at 8am, and at every break, I will have a few sips of BPC, 100mg of L-Theanine, and chew on 1/2 stick of Nicotine(about 1mg). During the middle break, I will have 2 tbls Whey Protein and 2tbls Collagen as a "lunch". I may take another Aniracetam, Sulbutiamine, or some L-Tyrosine as needed.
I imagine every student and the exam proctor will be looking at me funny downing pills and etc in my locker, but hey--it's legal.
At the end of the exam, I will take Bacopa, Ashwagandha, and another Aniracetam to wind down.
All the choline supplements, except for ALCAR, give me headaches, so I know I am choline dominant.
I find Armodafinil vastly superior to Modafinil.
Pramiracetam gives me a headache no matter what.
Nicotine, for me, is the strongest Nootropic, period.
Bacopa and Ashwagandha tend to make me a little too relaxed to take in the morning.
While studying, I only took Modafinil, Gabawave, Sulbutiamine, and Nicotine at max of 1-3x weekly, as needed, so as not to develop a tolerance.
