    Anyone else find it a little ridiculous that all august/late july seats for the MCAT filled up within 2-3hours of registration opening? On top of that, the system was bugged-up so that even if you did get a seat, the payment may or may have not gone through... so you ended up losing the seat!

    That happened to me, I had august 20th booked... but the system's payment system didn't work. So I lost that seat, then 20mins later I managed to get july 13th and the payment then conveniently worked. Pretty annoying! Thats an entire month and a bit less of prep-time, all due to system errors. I mean, its the MCAT for f's sake.. get it right, we arent paying ~240$ for nothing.


    Anyone else try to re-schedule every-day like me? Its frustrating as hell...

    i hear you man... i have to go all the way to syracuse, ny!!

    it's so bad... i wish they would open up more space and allow to mass check all locations

    they pretty much take the money and do nothing to help students :mad:

    they really underestimated the amount of people wanting to write in august, and hoped everyone would sign up for june/july..

    ive been hearing rumours they may open up more seats for august, I hope this is the case... with work and summer courses, my may/june is booked solid with little time for actual MCAT prep.

    I heard that they did this in Calgary at one point.

    However, I'm afraid that by the time I go online to reschedule it's going to be all booked up...

    Pretty much have to be really lucky to get a spot at this point.

    What are you going to do if you can't get a spot in Ontario for Aug?

    Yeah. Thats another thing... I really wanted to do a prep-course but unfortunately it wouldnt make sense if my actual test was before it ended!

    God, this sucks. I might end up doing it in NY or something... we'll see I guess.

    yeah.. i buckled, the stress isnt worth it.. i just re-scheduled to write in detroit for august 16th. Im fine with that. It gives me ALOT more time to study and the chance to take a prep-course.
