I guess what I'm also asking is will taking it again ruin my acceptance at all? Will the school that I was accepted to void my acceptance?I agree with both comments above. I would suggest not taking any classes this semester and instead taking the MCAT early. This way you can assess your chances of getting into your MD school, and if the third try is not successful you have your DO acceptance in hand.
You will have to update them with your new scores. Just don't get less than a 24 on the retake.I guess what I'm also asking is will taking it again ruin my acceptance at all? Will the school that I was accepted to void my acceptance?
I had wondered that too couldn't I just not release the scores?How would the DO schools ever find out if you re-took the MCAT? Don't you have to send your scores from the MCAT THx to AACOMAS in order for your score to show up? I understand they are automatically sent to AMCAS, so MD schools will def know, but if you skip the score transfer to AACOMAS, how will the DO schools ever know you took it again?
If your school does find out you re-took, maybe you can tell them you were trying to get a job with one of these MCAT prep companies, and you were required to score above a certain threshold in order to qualify for a teaching position at X company.
Heh, um. Well I guess I didn't specify. And for that i'm sorry. My instate school is DO as well, and is actually MORE expensive(but it has great rotations and is distinguished).It won't effect your current acceptance. You sound like you are determined to go to your state school, which makes sense because it's probably cheaper and MD > DO in the grand scheme of things. Buckle down and kill the MCAT.
That's kind of a huge omission. I personally wouldn't bother but it depends how bad you want it.
Yeah sorry for leaving that out everyone lol.Yeah, that changes everything. IMHO, take your acceptance and go be a killer doc.
When you submitted your secondary wasn't there an agreement that you needed to turn in all grades and MCAT scores? It includes grades after being accepted.Yeah sorry for leaving that out everyone lol.
So yeah. If I retake the test and do *worse*(like I fumble in verbal or something). Since it's the AACOMAS and not AMCAS, do I need to report it? or can I just leave it in the MCATThx?
I think you're right about the agreement actually. If for some reason I do worse, do you think it'd affect the acceptance??When you submitted your secondary wasn't there an agreement that you needed to turn in all grades and MCAT scores? It includes grades after being accepted.
Ethically you need to submit the new score no matter what it is.
If you do worse than a 22, I don't know what to tell you.
Are serious? I was thinking the state school you were talking about was a M.D.. I would not bother if I were you... I guess if you really like that state school, go for it then.
I honestly don't know.I think you're right about the agreement actually. If for some reason I do worse, do you think it'd affect the acceptance??
if your state school is MSUCOM, it is hard to blame you. Truth be told, MSUCOM>>>>>LUCOM.
