Take joy in the fact that he'll have to retake by the time he actually applies to medical school. Maybe hard drinking, recreational drug use, and the last surge of puberty will bring his score down amongst the rest of us.

I daresay it will be the harsh whip of a scorned woman.

I have a 17 year old in my MS1 class (well, he turned 18 a few months ago), and I'm willing to bet he got at least that on the MCAT. If that kid got a 38 out of high school, I'm guessing he'll finish college early and not have to retake.

if he graduates in three years, he'll have it in time.

Hopefully someone that smart won't waste time in med school. Gotta go for the PhD if you're a genius.

When I was junior in High school, I was taking AP Calculus, AP Physics B(our school did not have Physics C), and AP Computer Science. But there was a 8 years old kid who was also taking these courses with me. He was really brilliant. Is this kid a gunner?

I dunno. I think I was more prepared to take the MCAT in high school than in college, since there was very little orgo, and most of my study time for the test involved relearning stuff I did in AP Bio, Chem, & Physics. College classes didn't have much relation to MCAT material.

Does anyone else wonder why the hell this kid paid 100 dollars to take the test just to see how he'd do? Sounds like someone somewhere made this up.

Yea right, and my friend has a co-worker whose aunt heard about a kid who scored a 31 on his MCAT. We all know you're the 17 year old with the 38S. :p

I wonder what my MCAT score at 17 would have been then?

How about that kid who got into Pritzker who's like 12 years old? And he's in the MD/PhD program. I wonder what his MCAT score was?

Poor kid, he did not have normal childhood...he is missing a lot.I read about study that shows that those people have shorter life span. If I would not leave my country I would graduate from college at 19...I had no life. Question is does it really worth it? Did that kid who graduated in 1995 became a famous doctor to call him genious? What happenned to those kids who entered prof schools at so young age?

They eventually get older like the rest of us -- I have a feeling they will just end up blending in with the other folks who went through professional school, too. I really don't see any point in going to school that young.

they have no youth and have never had icecream or gone on a merry-go-round. They also have less body hair at the beginning (if they're men).

For me it was not worth it...I had straight "As" GPA, won couple of city competitions in physics and math. Why? I wanted to proof that I am not worse than anybody else. I wanted to proof that I have brains and blah blah..Was it worth it? No. I burned out and almost committed suicide when I got to the US because I realized that I was NOTHING (no language,no money, no job)...What I was hearing from my family was " you were the BEST before now do it!!! Why do you have problems with the language, you are not suppose to have any problems because u have a good memory, so why u cannot find a good job now, it is all easy for you!.."

In my opinion it does not worth it...Those people missing a lot and they dont know what they are missing because from their childhood their controlling parents tought them that there is only one way how to live the life. My kids will graduate at 17 or 18 and will go to college and graduate in normal time and will choose that they want to do...I want them to know life in many ways and be happy.

Well my cat says all the gunner kittens at the ASPCA burn themselves out by the time they are two years old 'cause they sell out their cutness for a bowl of cheap kibble and a plastic water dish.

She says the trick is to play it cool and enjoy your youth. That way you get a person who will buy you a customized cat bed and will clean your poop WELL into your senior years!

or like the kid who got the mustache/boobs first in junior high. you were cool for a moment and then years later when everyone got mustaches, you ended up being hairy and freakishly short or as for the case of the girl with the boobs, yours lost some of the pertness compared w/ the new installments. ok maybe this never happened.
