If the scores will be posted on the 26th, is it possible that they will be posted tonight at 10? Or are we going with the 28th...?

hello! This is a Computer based exam. The Key will be already there. then the computer should give us the result within minutes as soon as exam is over. thats what happens when you take TOEFL, DAT, GRE.Really cant they just send the writing scores later like TOEFL or GRE and give us our numerical score first. Previously when exams were used to be paper-based and offered only 2 times a year. the applicants would have been high. They needed 60 days. Now the exam is offered 22 times a year. So the applicant pool has been reduced by (number of applicants)/22 . So according to this, then the number of days require should also be reduced from 60 to (60/22). Which will be like 3-4 days. but 30 days is too much time.

that's an interesting way to look at it.
I think the true reason why it takes so long is because these AAMC people are not human. They are not even from this planet, so by the time it takes the scores to be sent over to their solar system and have it graded and sent back, thats about 4 weeks. With the paper-based exam it took 8 weeks because in space, paper moves half as fast as electricity. Trust me, I am an electrical engineer.
