    MCAT prepared me for the PCAT some years down the line with about a month of study/refresh, so just plunk down the $$ and take the PCAT (it's easy).

    My 30 translated to a 92 on the PCAT and the weight was about the same (MCAT: Verbal & Bio > physical science; PCAT: Verbal & Bio > chemistry & math).

      I think most people who have looked at (or better yet, did do) both the MCAT and PCAT would say the MCAT is harder and it's not close. The depth of the material is just completely different.

        It's anecdote, of course, but a handful of folks that I have spoken to would agree with you, and add that excellent performance on the MCAT would translate well into excellent performance on the PCAT.
