Looks like I'm rewriting :(

I got my score back and it was pretty much what I expected (I.e. crap). Sigh. I'm not disappointed per se... OK fine, I AM disappointed. But mostly because it means that I have to rewrite and I really, really don't want to.

I totally deserve what I got. And the only silver lining is that it was still the highest score I've ever received compared to all the practice tests I've taken (but don't take this to mean that it was good, it wasn't - it was below 30 - by a lot). But it sucks to have to face this reality.

The only section I did really well in was in the writing section, which of course is the one section no one cares about. I was hoping for higher than I got in verbal reasoning but I will admit I just didn't practice nearly enough, especially towards the end of my studying.

Well. So that's that. I've got to pick myself up, dust myself off and try again.


  1. You can do it! I'm sorry your score was a disappointment, but you can definitely pull it up. Lots of people manage to turn it around.

  2. Thanks Kay. I hope so. This attempt was really a "trial run" for me to see where I stand because I was just NOT prepared - and knew it - when I wrote. Still though I guess one always hopes for a small miracle.

  3. Sorry to hear it. I've known a number of people who are now in medicine after a bad first (and sometimes second or even third) MCAT score, so don't lose heart.
