Damn your app is so strong. Only thing holding you back is that cars score. You sure you don't want to retake and boost that cars? 125 is totally possible, only like 35/53 or something like that. Just a shame you can't go MD because of one tiny thing :/

Campbell screened me out after my primary for having less than a 40th percentile subscore on bio. From the email:

"Generally we look for a competitive MCAT total score within the 50% or above range with a 40% or greater in each section"

Up to you to interpret how encompassing "generally" is.

I had similar GPA and MCAT (122 CARS as well). I didn't get any love from MD school, but I got accepted at DO. I think you might have a chance at TX MD schools. I heard they care more about your science scores than CARS? Good luck and wish you the best

Hey guys, current applicant here.

Trying to narrow down a list of MD and DO schools to apply to that don't care about a low CARS score: 130/122/128/130 (510). I've seen people on here get into MD and DO w/ 121s and 122s, so I was wondering if y'all knew which schools gave applicants like me a chance?

For reference: TX res. so I'm utilizing TMDSAS already, this post is for AACOMAS and AMCAS schools. cGPA: 3.93, sGPA: 3.97, strong ECs. My only red flag is that CARS score.

Any help is much appreciated, thank you!

Oh man, you have some sweet creds otherwise. Apply broadly and have a story ready and how you are improving. CARS isn't 'real' in the sense that there is no direct USMLE equivalent, but it still looks weak to not have anything to address the low mark here. Someone will take a chance on you.
