Taking the MCAT multiple times

<p>For those of you who have already taken/passed the MCAT, how many times did you have to take the test to pass it or get the minimum score your medical school requires?
I've heard it is very, very, very hard to get a decent grade the first time you take the test, so I was wondering how you CCs have done.
Edit: I would appreciate it if you tell me your MCAT grade as well :)</p>

<p>I did well enough that my MCAT alone didn't keep me out of any school and I took it once. It is utterly not true that you can't do great the first time around.</p>
