I noticed that a few ppl posting their MCAT scores are Canadians who won't be applying to US schools. Yet the percentiles, AFAIK, reflect all MCAT test takers, not just US ones.

Since it's clear that there will be a number of high scoring Canadians, many won't apply to US schools. Thus, let's say that one was in the 75th percentile. That would normally imply that there were .25 * (# of mcat takers) with higher scores than they have. However, due to non-US citizens not applying to Canadian schools, the number is probably smaller.

Just a few words of encouragement.

Btw, any idea what % of MCAT takers are non-US students? Do Canadian med schools all require the MCAT?
