2 more days!!! I'm already freaking out. If you had the messed up passage put your score here so we can compare notes. Has anyone heard anything about getting a letter to accompany the score in case it's unusually low? I really don't want to have to take the MCAT again, but I'm really worried about how the passage affected my score. A letter explaining why it's so low would be great...well 2 more days, then I'll decide what to do...:scared:

I was really hoping that the scores would be released on the 26th as was the original plan. But given that it's the 26th and I don't see my scores, I guess not. Does anyone know if the miss-test people are the only ones waiting the extra two days or does everyone who took in Jan 27th have to wait?

No idea. I'm all crazy nervous. :scared: There's no way I can study for it during my current semester and if I take it in the summer it will be "late", well, later than my anal-retentive self wanted to take it. :D

Unless I'm totally embarrassed, I'll post my score. I had the verbal switcheroo.

Hey everybody, I guess I'll start this off. My score:
34P - 11 on verbal (Average kaplan for verbal was 12.5)
I'm happy enough with my score but I did notice a couple things. First the percentile range for an 11 on verbal seemed rather large (82.6 - 94.1), maybe this is the AAMC's fix? Expanding the curve so no one's mad? Also on the score breakdown there's a line that says:
Non-Standard Conditions: N
Oh AAMC... will we ever see the end of your antics.

just look - it's going to kill you not knowing. Man this brings back crazy memories from last October - I'm pretty sure my neighbors thought I was screaming from pain or something. That kind of sucks that scores aren't posted at night - no binge drinking (for celebratory or coping purposes).

Look after. And here are my scores. Note that I completely screwed up the section directly after verbal.

BS- 11
VR- 11
BS- 10


Writing sample- K

Considering that my minor is history and I write timed in-class essays on a regular basis, that is way lower than I expected. But at least I have a reason.

Hey, same numerical score here. :D And yeah, I wouldn't worry too much about the writing sample as you and others have mentioned: if anything, you should be able to explain it in your application / interviews. Great job!

I would just like to add a hearty "YEESSS! I do not have to retake the bloody MCAT! YES!" And I just called and woke up everyone I know.

Uhm... I'm retaking.

How did you still pull out with a high score in verbal? Congrats Fiddle and TX.

Before taking the MCAT, my lowest score in verbal was a 9... and that was when I was hardly trying. I had 10s easily. Physics was my roughest section, topping out at an 8. Are these really my scores?

7 V <~~~ What?! Words cannot begin to describe...
11 P <~~~ Awesome, how did I do that?
9 B <~~~ meh :)

So 27 overall. That was my initial diagnostic score. No improvement? :confused:

Oh, wait, right... The order is all wrong. When I took the exam it was Physical sciences first, which I apparently rocked. Verbal, where I freaked out. And Bio where I was barely able to pull it together again.

July here I come. *sigh*

Yeah, I usually do really well on VR. So an 11 was actually low for me, but it's still a good score.

VR-11
BS-12
WS-O

I still think that the verbal problem hurt me, but I don't care because of the overall. Thanks to all for the solidarity and support throughout this strange and all too long trip!

ps -10
vr - 9
bs -11
ws - O

so 30-O

Verabl reasoning was my best in practice, and I was scoring 11's and 12's on it. I had the bad passage. Do you guys think retake is necessary? I'm happy with my PS, as that was my weakest. Bio could have beena bit higher.

Re-take probably depends on your GPA. 30 is an acceptable score with a competitive GPA.

11 - PS
7 - VR
9 - BS

My scores obviously were affected by the passage error... I never score that low in BS or VR. Ughhh I have to take it again... and pay for it again

And I did have the messed up verbal, but I don't see an "N" ?? Maybe that's only if you reported it?

PS: 11 VR: 11 BS: 10 writing Q

i know i messed up the writing a little because the verbal mess up was on my mind. but over all I did better than I thought I would. I felt really bad after the exam. and I hadn't taken physics 2 or ochem2.

Congratulations... I had the same experience in my two MCATs. Paid for the $1000+ Princeton review course, took the 5/04 MCAT got a 28R. This time around, studied on my own for two months... brought it up to a 33R!

Awesome.

Some people who took the January 27th MCAT had a set of questions that didn't match the passage in the verbal section. AAMC corrected the problem by the next administration of the MCAT, but didn't handle the problem very well.

I got an email saying they would send a letter to all the schools are scores are sent to explaining the verbal reasoning problem.
