Ignore my writing score- the MCAT I took didn't have a writing section
As I started getting secondaries, I tried to keep my turnaround time to 1 week. Sometimes it took me a couple extra days, especially when I first started getting them and was receiving 3-4 a day. Keep an eye out for those that don't require extra essays and send those out on the day you get them.
