    1. Most people take MCAT in Aug. instead of April- True.

    2. It's best to take MCAT only once and receive a satisfying grade- True.

    3. People who score better will have greater chance falling into this category- taking MCAT only once.

    4. derive from (3), people who score less will likely to take MCAT multiple time.

    Conclude from above 4 statements, there is a higher percentage of people who take MCAT in Aug. score better.

    Since every test term, grades are curved, it's therefore easier to achieve score X in Apr. than in Aug.

    women = time x money
    since one must spend time and money for a woman

    time = money
    thus
    women = money x money = money ^ 2
    roof of 4 = 2
    root of 9 = 3
    root of (x^2) = x
    money is the roof of evil
    thus (money ^ 2) = (root of evil)^2
    thus (money x money) = evil
    since women = money x money = time x money
    we derive that women = evil
    women are so evil, so so evil


    I agree with MCAT analysis JUST because that is the funniest quote/cite I have seen in a long time. CHEERS!

    1. most april mcatters are still in school

    2. most schools have or are getting ready for final exams in april

    3. to want to study for exams as well as the mcat, one must be stupid (and ill-prepared)

    4. dervied from 3, if one is stupid, one thinks taking the mcat in april will guarantee a better curve cause they are taking the test against other stupid people

    5. stupid people will score poorly on the mcat regardless of the curve

    therefore, april mcatters will NOT score better than august mcatters.

    ummm...ok

    i don't agree with your method, but maybe it's a nicer curve in april because:

    more people study their asses off in the summer for the august mcat...while usually spring test takers are studying concurrently with school work.

    thus higher curve in the summer...albeit probably only slightly.

    I don't think it makes much difference when you take it as long as you are prepared. But it is interesting to note that the means on the science sections of the April 2002 MCAT were slightly higher than the means on the August 2002 MCAT.

    Means for April 2002 MCAT: 7.8v, 8.2p, 8.4b
    Means for August 2002 MCAT: 7.8v, 8.0p, 8.3b

    Nothing to write home about though. And I have no idea if this is a trend that has existed throughout the years.
