    -My 5/31 MCAT was 8PS 10VR 10BS =28Q; 8/5 was 10PS 8VR 11BS= 29Q; I was so suprised that I got so low in verbal on my 8/5 never gotten that low on any practice test. Hoping that med schools will see the improvement and know that verbal is a crap shoot. If you take the best from each section I got a 31...hope that counts for something
