    Hello Everyone,

    I have a question about repeating the MCAT. One of my Kaplan instructors told me that med schools will either 1)average your old and new scores and use those numbers as your actual score, 2)use only the better of the two scores, or 3)look at both sets of scores and compare them. He also said that there was no way of finding out which method a school will use. Is this true?

    What he has told you is true.

    As it is a rare medical school who publishes (whether on paper or online) detailed information regarding their selection algorhythms, there is no way to know what they do with MCATs unless you call them and they are willing to tell you. However, if you really want to know, it will only cost you a phone call. Just be polite and respectful when you call -- at some medical schools, admissions office staff have been known to sabotage someone who was an a**hole on the telephone.
