Didn't know you could become a surgeon before you got your MCAT scores back!I was in surgery all morning and well into the early afternoon. Checked my iphone obsessively but discreetly the minute I got out of surgery and finally scores were posted around 3 pm. Was very calm and did not react to my scores when I saw them - I was at lunch with a doctor. Was pleasantly surprised by my physical science score, not very pleased with my verbal though I recognized it was decent, and not-so-pleasantly surprised by the bio section. My essay score sucked just as much as I expected. Overall, I was not stoked, but was ok with it. Considered re-taking, but it was too late in the cycle and I didn't want to have to go through that again. At the end of the day, I decided to be happy because it was an overall good day after all. My first day of surgeries went smoothly and I didn't bomb the MCAT.
1st time: Disappointment
2nd time: RELIEF!!!!! Having to take the MCAT more than once is a pain I do not wish upon my worse enemy. Even though my score was good the second time, I could not feel happy. It was just relief.
