    hey guys...
    so I just heard that a school I am applying to is "increasing" their average mcat from a 27 to a 29... that being said - I talked to my school counselors about my mcat and they said that they've seen LOWER and a lot of lower scores than normal (normal being the paper exam). do you think admission committees are still expecting people to rise to a higher average even if the computer average is lower than the paper average???
    does this make sense?:rolleyes:
    Thanks guys!

    In general, average scores at all schools are on the rise. The MCAT is standardized so that they can compare it across administrations so I wouldn't worry about variances in paper vs. computer scores.

    has there been any computation of an average from January and April mcats?
    I just don't understand how they will compare CBT averages to paper averages if they aren't as high...

    The composite data isn't up yet, but I assure you, scores are relatively the same with the same bell curve as the paper.
