    Ok everyone, here is the plan...

    Because the MCAT is graded on a curve we can fix the out come. So everyone with there last name starting with M-Z, you all have to do really bad on this test. This way everyone A-L will have an above average score. This only works if A-L comes back in April and does really bad so M-Z can do well then. This works out because most schools take your best score! Does everyone agree?


    P.S. Who else is getting an ulcer?

    I'm getting it out of my system.:p

    Seriously. If this happened med schools would obviously notice and they'd do something about it. Not to mention that it wouldn't really help. There would still be a distribution amongst the people that didn't intentionally tank it. That distribution would provide the comparison the MCAT is designed to give. You can't have everyone beat the system on a test that is scored relatively.

    Boy...I thought I would just make a joke. Maybe you should spend the time that you read, replyed, and replyed again and study your self. Clearly this plan wouldn't work, it was suppose to make you smile.
