Took MCAT in Aug 2001 got 9V, 10PS, 9BS
Took MCAT in Aug 2002 got 11V, 8PS, 11BS

Possible schools use my 10 in PS from 2001 and I have a 32 or do I have a measly 30?

I'm guessing that you'll go down as a '30,' but that the fact that you got a 10 on PS the first time you took it will help smooth over any concerns about your physical science ability (and for the record, I don't think that there will be any).

measely was said tongue in cheek (full of sarcasm) looking at percentile and realizing that I a 30 pretty much means you were at 80% in all 3 sections (if you're score is fairly balanced) I was accepting. A 30 is great in the real world on SDN it is measely. HEHE.

Welcome to SDN, avgapplicant!! :) Hint: Next time use the smilies to indicate sarcasm or jokes. ;) I never felt my 30 was measely, even on SDN. It's what I aimed for on the MCAT, and I was overjoyed to get it (unbalanced as it was -- 12V, 8PS, 10BS). :D

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, this process is not all about stats. See the chances??

Chances they might be but to go through another year of torture with no reward at the end save a couple of waiting lists like last year would be torture. Plus this is no fun on my pocketbook. HEHE:)
