SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hi guys, I'm applying to med schools in the coming up summer, and I'm just wondering if anyone has any good strategy for verbal improvement. I've taken 4 practice exams (1 from AAMC, 3 from kaplan) and my scores on the verbal section were 10, 10, 10, 9. (all of them are 1 question away from 1 point less... scary... ) I'm fairly good at the other two sections, have been getting 13-14 consistently on PS, and 11-12 on BS. My aim is to get into a top 10 school (if I even have a shot), so I think I desperately need to improve my verbal. Anyone has any good suggestions? Much appreciate it! Another question is, how bad is an unbalanced score? Say PS-VR-BS: 14 - 10 - 12, or even 14 - 9 - 12? Do I still have a shot for top 10 if my score is unbalanced like this? Science GPA 3.7, go to an ivy school, solid letters, have volunteering and research experience and is about to be listed as second author on a paper to be published in a few months. Personally, I've been pretty pessimistic about my chance to get into top 10 because I'm really freaking out about MCAT... Thanks again, guys.
