wow it seems like Oct 08 pcat scores is relatively bad for sdners...me inclusive but we should try and post our score as well as advice each other on the prospect of earning an interview, perhaps an acceptance. I'm spitting jargon but i hope to see more people oblige to this thread.

Relax, it is not the end of the world for you. You might have to wait a whole year unless you apply to non-pcat schools which are quite competitve as well. Try those schools but i tell you, 41 comp probably won't earn you anything. Your plan should include taking the pcat again, perhaps in June when you av studied for months. Maybe you can nail 90+. I took it four times and i ended up with a 79 as my highest in all 4 trials.

Quantitative Ability 428/91

how come u got 91 percentile with 428 and others got 88 percentile with 434??

The norm group is comprised of all first-time test takers who took the PCAT between October 1998 and March 2003.

so everyone's score is compared to the same norm group??

Wow I did HORRIBLY!! I mean...I didn't study, I haven't completed Organic I or Bio II, and I had a lot of major personal stuff going on. I SOBBED when I got my scores. I got an 89 in Verbal Ability and 3.0 in each of the writing sections...other than that...it was TERRIBLE. WAY worse than I expected...24 in Quant and 30something for Bio and Chem...

Welp, everything is pointing to this taking an extra year. So be it. :D

And it has taken me this long to even show my face here to tell you all my scores. :laugh:

Oh well. That's life. I will take it next summer and do better. How do you retract your applications? I won't even have prereqs completed anymore because of my personal stuff and health.
