    How many times did you take the MCAT before you got a score that you were satisfied enough to apply with?

    Bump. I wonder if those that take the MCAT more than 3 times have a more difficult time getting into an MD school. So few people seem to take the MCAT more than 3 times.

    dont think so, except in the terms of you can only take it 3 times in a year, other than that it doesnt show up or anything.

    I was just questioning in terms of the thread. I understand how voids work on the test.

    A good friend of mine took it 4 times and voided the first three. Popped a 32 the fourth time. Super happy for him.
