Do they automatically reject those with a score below 30?

I dont think that there is an official cut-off, but I could be wrong.

However, I once, somewhat randomly met a physician who is a former comittee member. Her major advice was to make sure you get at least a 30, dont know if that was a reference to some sort of cut off or not...

I think it is better to have it balanced than just a 30. For instance, a 10, 10, 9 I think is much better than a 12, 11, 7

I would generally agree, unless there is a cutoff based only on the total score, then the lopsided 30 is better.

:laugh: dude, that'd be at least a third of their class. The mean MCAT at Ohio State according to the MSAR is a 31, so they're not going to cut you off at 30!

I have a friend on the Adcom at OSU, while a Cut off per say does not exsit this year they have not interviewed anyone with less than a 30 on the MCAT.

Good luck with your interview; I am just relaying what I was told. Maybe my friend meant he/she has not interviewed anyone with less than a 30. I'll try to find out, but way to go with the interview, OSU is a great school.

a gal in the admissions office told me in September that she didn't think they would be dipping below a 30 this year.

Although, technically, the statement that they "have not interviewed anyone below a 30" is not contradicted by a 28 MCATer having an interview tomorrow.

I thought I had a pretty good application but got a 29, and I didn't get an interview (they informed me that they closed my file today). Traditionally, Ohio State interviews a lot of students from my undergrad school (BYU) so I was surprised, but I guess I wasn't what they were looking for.

don't give them a second thought. You don't want to go to Ohio -- you want to come to UofU with me.
