I hope others of us who have less than sub par mcats can show the haters that 1 test doesn't determine your future. Good luck to everyone!

Not haters, but rather disbelievers
Nobody is a hater. Your MCAT score has no relevance to what kind of doctor you will be. But having a lower score significantly impacts your chances of getting accepted and so advice should be given accordingly. If we didn't do that we would be doing a disservice to those asking what their chances are. Underdog stories are great, but they are not the norm.

This is very true. I appreciated the realism i got rather than only optimism in the advice from you guys. Luckily, some schools do look holistically at your app and if everything else is strong, a bad MCAT score is not an immediate death sentence. I do recognize that an early II and acceptance are not the norm in this case, however, so i am really grateful and ecstatic. :)
