SDN Members don't see this ad. About the ads. I think that the URM effect is definitely over-estimated on SDN. I have been doing some research and things have really changed in the past years. The MCAT median for accepted applicants is a 32 Q and rising. In addition many URMs are scoring in higher percentile overall. I have some friends AA males that have yet to recieve an interview this cycle. And AA girl who has been to only one.. and has been completed since august. The URM effect is not as strong as it used to be and those who are banking on it I believe, are in for a big surprize! Any thoughts?
