I called Harcourt today and asked the same question. They told me that the scores should be sent out late February to early March. Best of luck!lgooden said:Hey everyone - think we will get the Jan PCAT scores soon, or do you think they will be delayed because some people took them a week late 'cause of the weather? The Nov. scores were mailed out really quickly.
That sucks!!! That means we have to wait another 2-3 weeks? I was so hoping we'd get them early and i'd be surprised with my scores by the end of next week. And so the agony continues....gtam18 said:I called Harcourt today and asked the same question. They told me that the scores should be sent out late February to early March. Best of luck!
glagic said:whats a good composite score? i got my results today and it seems to be ok, but i cant find anything on how high a good score is.
btw...i got a composite score of 89
Your score is just fine. I was accepted with a composite of 84.glagic said:whats a good composite score? i got my results today and it seems to be ok, but i cant find anything on how high a good score is.

What were the rest of your scores? (chem-bio-reading-writing)Phantom said:1% quantitative ability
I'm with you, Ohio. I'm in Illinois and I haven't gotten mine yet, but now with all of these posts my blood pressure is making my eyeballs throb in anticipation. I was doing so good waiting patiently...lgooden said:Congrats Texas11! I wonder why they told people the end of Feb/early March if they obviously had to have been mailed out yesterday? Maybe they don't mail them all on the same date or wanted to overestimate in case something happened? Anyway, hopefully mine will make it up to Ohio soon.... I'm really obsessive, I went to usps.com and it said that mail from the pcat zip code should take 3 days regular mail to get to me. So that should be Saturday! We'll see
i would say it would depend on the school you want to get into.freshbeatschris said:I'm not too thrilled, but I'm not too crushed, either.
I don't know what to do now.
I got the 80th %tile.
Should I take it again over the summer?
What do you guys think?
So far, my pre-pharmacy curriculum is a 4.0. I already have a B.A. degree. I've won awards in both photography and chemistry. Do I need to boost my PCAT score up a bit? I've got two more shots at this.
Any advice appreciated...
numbers numbers I'm a slave to my numbers.
if you really bombed it, there will be tons of room for improvement.freshbeatschris said:What were the rest of your scores? (chem-bio-reading-writing)
I know that I bombed the math portion, but I think I nailed the rest.
I meant to say verbal, but yes, there was a writing portion at the end of our tests. It was experimental this time, who knows about next timePhantom said:if you really bombed it, there will be tons of room for improvement.
verbal------420 / 80
bio---------437 / 92
reading-----414 / 71
quant-------335 / 1 (i answered 10 questions, didn't have time to bubble in)
chem-------431 / 89
composite---407 / 64
average = 407.4 / 66.6
if i got an 85 in math, i would have an approximate 84 percentile
which subject is the writing under??? was it even graded? was the writing just experimental? what about next time?
Where do I go to find the average PCAT score of the school I want to go to? I found a site that had the ratio of men to women, the ration of how many applied to how many got in, and average GPA, but it made no mention of PCAT scores.bbmuffin said:i would say it would depend on the school you want to get into.
look at the schools' average....
i think your stats are fine and would probably be fine for my school but perhaps not for others

Thanks for your advice.
I checked with the school and PharmCAS's info on the school and neither one says anything about the PCAT scores. I'll keep looking.bbmuffin said:hmmmm
i believe pharm cas might have the low.... they also might have the average of the past class... also check out individual school websites to see what you can find.
i'm not really sure about this... someone else may be able to help you who is a little more involved in the process right now.
UF says on their website that they are considering January's PCAT scores. As another UF applicant, I would say that at least a 90 PCAT and a 3.0 science/math gpa would be good enough for them to not just toss into the "deny" pile.tricia said:i just got my january pcat today. i improved my score from an 86 to a 94. im applying to UF and havent heard back from them yet. do you think it's too late for them to consider this new pcat score? do you think a 94 pcat and a 3.3 gpa is good enough for UF? ::crosses fingers::
SmartBeauty said:Hello everyone,
I am new here. I aslo got my PCAT score today and they looked pretty bad (compare to what I have seen here.) I'm from NJ and I thought (hopefully) I was reading the test wrong. Can some one tell me how to read it? How do I know if I did good or bad on these test. I'm not posting my score up (b/c of shame ) but the composite score, the scaled score and the percentile rank, how do I fiqure out the overall success of my score?
