    in your opinion?

    I say dropping a forty-five lb weight on your crotch is pretty close: :scared:

    Getting a 20 on the MCAT is worse than the MCAT.

    3. An 800 lb. gorilla approaching you as you are eating on your lunch break during the MCAT

    I had to lay off 3 employees, all of whom had 5 or more years with the company. That sucked. One of them still doesn't have a job, and teeters on the realm of suicide...makes whining about the MKitty seem like small potatoes.

    It's a possibility, though some may argue with what? a water gun may be much better than the mcat..... there are several things I can think of that, if shot in the face with, would be much worse than the mcat

    I agree with 1. and 3. but this is what doctors say about the USMLE...

    Study 2 months for USMLE Step I
    Study 2 weeks for USMLE Step II
    Bring a number 2 pencil for USMLE Step III

    Second! I actually enjoyed the MCAT in comparison with the burden of essay-writing and anxiety of waiting.

    Waiting for your score to come is the worst.

    Taking it twice and the second time around, right before you begin your day you have to piss like you've never had to piss before, ask the proctor discretly if you can go use the rest room as she reads the instructions (yeh, we get it, don't cheat) and she responds be announcing to the entire lecture hall that you you have to wait until time starts and that they won't wait for you. You then proceed to sit through the entire physical sciences section praying that your bladder won't explode while calculating the cell potential of a solar panel mechanism. Compound this with the drugs you are on because you have been deathly ill for a week, to the point that the Wednesday prior to your MCAT, you couldn't fathom getting out of bed. Snot flowing out your nose faster than that stupid hole at the bottom of a water tower that travels a a sqrt(2*g*h) m/s.

    Yeh, that kinda sucked.

    when your bathroom regurgitates from the sewage line the night before your practice exam and roto-rooter stays in your house and puts poo-covered stuff on your clean sleeping bag (grr) and stays for 8 hours trying to solve the problem while you try to figure out where to sleep.

    that sucked.

    How about 3 times? I might have to take the MCAT again (for the 3rd time) in August...because my last one expires after this June. :(

    Herpes would be worse than the mcat. At least, that is my best estimate as I have never had herpes and I sat next to a girl who looked like angelina jolie during the mcat.

    Good question. hmm. I had to really focus but it was worth it because I could use the remaining 10 or 15 minutes in each section to stare at her.
