Any REAL SAT MCAT correlation??

Discussion in 'Pre-Medical - MD' started by Beoz, Jun 22, 2002.

  1. For those who scroed above 1300 SAT did anyone score below a 30 MCAT?

    For those that got under a 1300 SAT who got above a 30 MCAT?

    Just something out of curiousity.

    It is terribly difficult for me to see any correlation, but I did take the MCAT much more seriously than I ever took the SAT.

    On this topic, I've come to several conclusions.

    1. There is a weak correlation between SAT & MCAT scores.

    2. The tests are very different in their approaches (e.g., SAT Verbal = heavy emphasis on vocabulary, MCAT Verbal = heavy emphasis on reading comprehension).

    3. A particular person's circumstances (e.g., how motivated s/he was to study at the time) trump any predictive power of the correlation.

    In English, if you scored well on the SAT, you stand a fair shot at scoring well on the MCAT. Or, if you did poorly on the SAT, you can still do very well on the MCAT.
