So took the mcat 3 times already
2007 30 (wasn't happy)
2008 27 (devastated -> forced retake)
2009 32 (best, but after 3)

My problem is this score is only useful (applicable and non-expiry) for about 15-16 schools, most of whom are out of state for me.
My question is, should I retake (july) and apply this cycle too? MCAT's gotten harder, from the sounds of it for this year, and well i'm not the best test-taker either from the looks of it (ie linear upward trend)

3.57/3.63 c/s gpa

Do I risk applying this cycle w/ what I have to the schools who will accept my score? Caveat, those same schools who accept my score also have absurdly median high GPA and/or MCAT scores

Seems like a 30 back in 2007 would probably have been the equivalent of a 32-33 nowadays.

I would position yourself to retake the MCAT, you'll give yourself more options that way.
