    OKAY, I KNOW IT SOUNDS LIKE AN OBTUSE QUESTION. Yet, I assume that most people study somewhat hard for their first MCAT, yet do much better on their second time around. Do you think its a psychological advantage on the 2nd or 3rd go around more than just the fact that the person just studied harder?

    Many people do worse on their second mcat...have you seen the statistics? If you have 9 or above in any section, it's statistically rare to improve.....which is part of the reason I didn't retake.

    An overwhelming majority of the people (~90%) who responded to my poll that I posted a couple days ago said that they improved in their overall score. I dont know who reliable a poll like that is, but I do place some trust in it.

    Why do guys last longer the second time they have sex during an evening? Why do they last even longer the third time?

    It's a mystery man. Just don't think about it....

It's reliable, unlike a poll on SDN <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />
