I have to bring this topic up again. I'm reading several posts where people are bemoaning their verbal scores (and often point out their high essay scores) and can't help but wonder if there is the slightest possibility that they were scored wrong. It just seems odd that so many people are reporting such low scores with otherwise respectable P, BS and essay numbers. I could understand it if the scores were not calculated in relation to everyone else who took the exam, but they aren't. I'm one of them (if you haven't guessed yet). My verbal was a 6 and my essay was an "S". I last took the MCAT in 1993 and got a 10 on the verbal.
