    Hi everyone,
    I was wondering, if they mcat score is no longer valid after 3 yrs, does it mean the score will not show up on the records or will it only be disregarded? Does that also mean that after 3 yrs, you get new chances to retake? For example,
    I took the test 2 yrs ago and am planning to take it again this year. Then,what if I need to take it again after that, will that appear as taking it 3 times or only 2? The other thing is the first time I took it was on paper, will they cut you some slack for taking it once on paper and then twice on comp 2-3 yrs later? Any thoughts would be helpful, thanks!

    The score will still show up on the report.

    Also (you knew there would be more coming), while the majority of schools only consider MCAT scores from the past 3 years, some schools (Iowa comes to mind) weigh your MCAT scores as far back as 6 years into their decisions.
