    How unnecessary to make us wait until after 5. Seriously. They already have our scores. Why do they make us wait even longer?. I need to know what I got so I can go cry in a corner and figure out what my next move will be.

    I agree. I keep checking this thread at work every 30 seconds. Then refreshing the score page. This is just cruel. I'm extremely unproductive today and my mind is somewhere else. Like on a bottle of tequila. Or shopping to buy myself something nice if all goes well lol

    Just got my score 31N SIGH thank god. I'm a little disappointed in my PS score. I thought I would do better, but I increased in verbal and BS. 10/11/10 Good enough for me.

    Do you think the N will hurt me? My previous score was 28Q

    10 physical, 10 verbal, and 9 Biological. It's funny, I thought I murdered the bio and honestly flunked physical and verbal. I felt like bio was going to be a 13 or higher. I really wanted a 30 or better but I'm not going to retake this cycle. Crossing my fingers.

    I find it ironic that my verbal increased by 2 points when I didn't see the score increase the entire time I was studying. And my PS stayed the same even though I studied a **** load and saw my scores increasing. Must be the physics that screwed me over. BS went up by one point.

    Little disappointed.. but hopefully this is enough..

    Kaplan avg = 34
    AAMC avg = 34

    Prediction: 34

    5/31/12 score 31M (9V 11P 11B)

    Oh well, Hopefully this is enough to get in somewhere. I was hoping I'd get a 35+ but I guess I kinda freaked out on test day. Maybe God is teaching me to not value a score so much but to trust in Him.

    Congratulations for everyone to finish this gauntlet test.

    My GPA totally sucks so I was really hoping for a 35.
    I guess this is much better than my predicted score though. I thought I completely bombed the verbal when I walked out but thought I did really well on the physical and wasn't sure about biological.

    But still... I didn't get anything below a 30 so halleluya.

    AAMC average 30-31
    Kaplan average 35

    Time spent studying: Off and on from January to May with Kaplan Course. 2 weeks after finals before the test everyday ~6-10hrs.

    Actual 32R (11PS, 11VR, 10BS)

    I'm surprised that I did the worst in bio thinking it went the best. I thought I screwed up PS a lot worse due to several miscalculations and really really dumb mistake (if anyone remembers a certain triangle, I literally spent 5 minutes trying to figure out how to do cosine theta, gave up, and guessed wrong. I realized it halfway through VR and that kinda through me off. Know for a fact I got at least 5 wrong in this section.

    VR was about what I expected. Seemed somewhat easier on actual exam. I had about 13 minutes to do the last two sections but somehow finished right on time. My practice scores ranged from 8-12 and averaged at about a 10.

    BS was really a surprise. I was expecting a 12-13 after taking the actual exam. BS was always my strongest practice section and what kills me the most about my lower score is that I think a few ochem questions killed it (I teach ochem and left the test wondering what the heck I had been thinking). Knew of about 3-4 I got wrong in this section for sure.

    Writing: I thought my essays sucked. I realized at the end of the first one that I hadn't really answered the prompt fully, so I just randomly injected sentences that would support my arguments. I guess it worked. I'm usually a pretty strong writer though, so I'm sure that helped. I used the writing section to refresh myself and get over how bad I thought I did in PS and VR.

    For those worrying about their score during the wait month, I simply wouldn't worry about it. There's nothing you can do now and killing yourself over which ones you got wrong is not going to help you any. I left the test feeling like I should have voided. I had nightmares and got about 3-4hrs of sleep each night for the weekend after the test. I was sure that I got around 25-28 and was prepared to sign up for a retake in August after I got these scores back. I'm very pleased with an average score considering how much time I was able to devote to studying.

    So yeah, this confirms my suspicion that if the person taking MCAT is majoring in any biology/chemistry-related fields in UG, and pays attention to the stuff being taught, the BS section on the MCAT is pretty trivial. All in all I spent the least amount of time reviewing that section (maybe 4 hours on biology stuff, 4 hours on ochem stuff, on/off reading off the kaplan MCAT textbook, didn't even touch any practice question / answers) and still got a 14 in it.

    Not disappointed about my VR 10 score but not excited about it either, Canadian medical schools are the most picky on this score and I might get left in the cold at some point cuz of this. My own fault though, I did not practice for VR at all, none. Only thing I skimmed about it was the general kaplan "verbal reasoning section strategy" section in its textbook. Ah well.

    Lets hope 10/12/14 isn't too lopsided.
