    Hi people, have any of you who took the Aug MCAT received UCLA secondaries? My AMCAS app was complete way back in August. I also took the MCAT last April, but when the secondary didn't come for awhile I figured they were waiting for my Aug scores. But Davis was also waiting for my scores and I got their secondary a month ago. So maybe UCLA is just slower because they have more apps to go through? Or is something wrong? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

    i took the august mcat and am still waiting to hear from ucla. i've heard from all the other uc's. i know an august mcater who got a ucla secondary, so i don't know what the deal is. either they're slow or we're gonna be rejected. i just got uc davis yesterday, so it is still possible we could get one i guess.

    hey Sunny.

    i was worried too...but i recieved my secondary last week. I'm filling out my UC application as well as secondary since i'm only applying to UCLA.

    I recieved a thin letter thinking it was rejection since its been so long...and since i recieved a pre secondary rejection from stanford.

    anyway, my app is due december 20th so i think there is still hope for people who didn't get stuff from them yet...now about that one essay i'm having trouble with...

    good luck :p

    I also took the Aug MCAT, but had another score from a year ago. I received UCLA's secondary in early Sept, before the MCAT scores came out. From what I understand, UCLA can be quite slow, so hopefully you'll receive the sec soon!

    I took the MCAT for the first time in August and rec'd an invite to fill out the UCLA secondary in a letter dated Oct. 17th. My AMCAS app was verified in early October, so it looks like they sent out my notification shortly after receiving scores.

    Good luck!

    I retook the MCAT b/c of a lousy 9 on verbal. I thought I could raise that score, but alas, I did not succeed. Overall, I went from 33N to 34Q, so I guess it wasn't too bad. I myself is from Cal, and knowing how tough UC's are to get in, I wanted a higher score to be more competitive. Hope this helps!

  9. it does help...did you go down in verbal or stay the same? did you study more? you see, i got an 8 in verbal so i'm retaking but i'm soooo scared it will go lower...i absolutely SUCK at verbal. =D

    well, 34Q is a great score, i think you will get in. =D which school do you go to?
