    If someone calls them, can you also ask whether they are sending ALL THE SCORES OUT TODAY? or just one of many many batches?

    I wonder if all the people who work for MCAT were rejected from med-school...maybe this is a way to get back at the whole process?

    CONSPIRACY THEORY! :D

    nope. not a nurse. i do clinical research, but we don't have any clinics today and therefore i'm stuck in front of the computer. i should have said "seeing participants" instead of "seeing patients". my bad!!

    sweat tea: That sounds cool! My research is part clinical too... or will be in a few days... hopefully :)
    Yeah "seeing patients" makes me think doctor, nurse, PA, etc... but that could be just me :)

    really??
    I "see patients" all the time, at least that's what I say/think. They have a disease, they participate in research that i do..and they come to me as participants, although they are patients. :D talk about egocentric, I'd rather think "patients" than "participants." Atleast that way I feel partly half way there. :rolleyes:

My problem is that I get so used to using patients when I work EMS that it's hard for me to say anything else. No I'm not a creature of habit...

    I think this thread is digressing. At least we're keeping ourselves occupied until the scores are released!

    part of me really wants to call them (again) and pester them until they give me my score just to shut me up, but then a bigger part of me says that the more they're distracted by people calling in, the slower they'll be in posting everyone's score.

    i think i'm going to wake up tomorrow morning and still not know my score.

    stupid test.
