I was checking something on the AAMC site and saw this new info. It looks like the next MCATer's are getting lucky. They will have less questions to complete in verbal with the same amount of time. The added genetics part is interesting because you are suppossed to be able to take the test with only the basic 8 hours of gen. biology. Genetics wasn't taught in my gen bio. I'm glad I am done with the MCAT but I wonder how the new one will compare to the ones taken in previous years. Copied from the aamc web site. """An Updated MCAT Is Coming! In 2003, the MCAT will change slightly. A few organic chemistry questions will be replaced by questions on DNA and genetics, the Verbal Reasoning (VR) section will have five fewer questions, it will be possible to achieve a 14 or 15 on the VR, and a total score will be reported (e.g., 45T). The changes are subtle, but may provide a better opportunity for many students interested in medicine.""
