    Well, it wasn't me (fortunately), but my best friend in college. Super nice guy, very cool and laid-back. The first time we took the exam last year, I did well but he got 8V-8PS-6BS (dunno what he got in writing). Needless to say he was SHOCKED. Granted we didn't study that much (perhaps MUCH less for him :D ), but he is a smart guy!!

    So he took it again this year and got 11, 13, 13. Not bad for a comeback huh? Our premed advisor was shocked to see the improvement, and was telling us that 99% of people who retake MCAT get the same score (+-1 point total).

    Anyone have a better comeback story???

    I went up five points my second time, then another two my third. Sounds like your friend may have missed a couple bubbles or got sketchy the first time around

    - the only difference for me was devoting much more time to verbal.

    I went up 6 points my second time, and 3 more my third. what helped me out was that the third time I took it, I actually had time to study.

    Hi everyone, please if you don't mind, also put what you did diff. to improve your MCAT score. I took the MCAT last April, unfortunately, I didn't do too well. Now, I am actually scare about the test. Not quite sure what to do to improve my score because I did study for like 3 months for the first one and also took TPR. Thanks for the advices.
