Oldest MCAT accepted?

Hi everyone, I was wondering how strict medical schools are on how old your MCATs are. I took mine in Sept 2010, but decided to defer my application until after I did my PhD. I am aiming to apply Summer 2015 (Summer 2014 at the earliest).

I was wondering if medical schools are amenable at all to older scores. I know this varies by school but I was just looking for anecdotal evidence, especially from students who deferred to do a PhD. Is it possible to "petition" for an older score to get accepted (that is, email the admissions office and beg since I was so involved doing graduate work since 2010)? Though that might just be a pipe dream. Any help would be appreciated.

One can always ask but I would tend to believe the school website. Our MCAT expiration date has not been waived in my memory.
