Hi. I'm applying to a number of middle tier schools in the north-east. I did my undergrad at UWO in Ontario. I'm a little concerned about my mcat verbal - 8V 11PS 12BS N-WS. Are my verbal and writing marks too low? I have approx 3.55 gpa and decent/so-so ECs.

Thoughts???

I'm a Canadian and I applied to so-called "mid-tier" schools with similar MCAT scores... well, maybe slightly higher VR.

The point is, go for it... you'll never know which schools will invite you for an interview, so you have to give it a try.

However, my personal experience is that as an international applicant, higher MCAT scores will definitely give you an edge as I wasn't all that lucky with my application to med schools in the US.
