I hope this isn't a repost, but I just got an e-mail so I thought I'd share.

The MCAT CBT is currently administered in most international testing locations
as well as a number of domestic ones.
--August 2006 will be the last paper-and-pencil MCAT. At that time, there will
also be a large scale administration of the computer test with full implementation
of the CBT in 2007. In the meantime, the AAMC will continue to offer a full-length computer version of the MCAT in select locations.
--Starting in 2007, the total test time will shrink from 8 hours to approximately
5 hours, with a large part of that saved time stemming from an inherently
simplified administration. Also announced for 2007 is a shorter test that cuts
testing time by one-third.
--Examinees will have more opportunities to take the exam, possibly up to 20
days in a year, compared to the current two administrations. :thumbup:
