    I have taken the MCAT twice. Scored low thirties both time (30-32). I have never struggled with an academic thing this much in my life and it really was a reality check: I'm not as smart as I thought I was.

    I want to take the MCAT one more time because I really want a great MCAT score. I want to prove it to myself above all else, not to mention that everyone I know has a 35+ score. Will the simple fact that I took the MCAT 3 times be a huge red flag??

    Why do you NEED an MCAT score higher than what you received the first two times other than feeling inferior solely because others that you know got a higher score than you? Your scores were fine assuming your GPA is good, stopping taking the chances of ruining a decent score and landing an acceptance. I can't give you an answer as to whether it is a HUGE red flag but the general consensus is that taking the test over and over without improvement doesn't look good.
