SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I have previously posted about something like this, albeit in a sort of "Excel spreadsheet, anyone?" way. Now that it's directly relevant to me, I'm curious as to how valid these scores have been, historically speaking. (LizzyM, if you see this, I'd love your input as to where that formula originated. I've read many of your posts here with great interest, so I'm always interested in what you have to say). According to the spreadsheet there which is based on the 2008-2009 MSAR, three of the schools to which I am applying are "Go for it" schools; the other three are "reach" schools. Given a ~3.9 GPA and not-so-great 25 MCAT, the three "Go for it" fields are encouraging. Just curious as to further info on LizzyM scores. Maybe I missed something in those previous threads.
