Hey everyone. I took the April 2002 MCAT (after preparing with Kaplan for 5 months) and totally bombed. My score was the equivalent of my first diagnostic. I'm not sure how to go about studying for the August MCAT: studying on my own or taking the repeat course which costs $400. Any advice is welcome.

I posted an answer for your other question, but here is my other response. I took Kaplan for the April 2002 MCAT. Considering how bad my diag. was, I did go up 8 points and did well on my WS. I spent 6 days a week, and 6-7 hours a day at the test center. I worked until I could work no more. I got to 90% of the material. As I said, it did pay off by my 8 point score improvement - I went up 3-4 points in BS and VR but only 1 point in PS. I thought of retaking the course and paying the $400, but I want my refund now.

I would look into other reputed MCAT prep books, For the August MCAT, I am using only EXAMKRACKERS. You can get the books at any Barnes and Nobles. I think I will vomit if I see anymore Kaplan material. GOOD LUCK

That seems unreasonable.

Can one request a refund? I only improved 4 points from my diagnostic to my actual MCAT this April. I didn't spend 6-7 hours at the center, but I attended all of the classes and did go to the center for a total of 10 hours or so. I'd love to get my money back! Thanks for the info.

Oh gosh! I think people misunderstood me. I payed the $400 bucks to RETAKE THE COURSE FOR THE SECOND TIME!!!! I changed my mind about retaking the course so I want my refund for that. NOT FOR TAKING IT THE FIRST TIME&gt;SORRY ABOUT THAT!
