    I got an email from the admission office of Medical College of Wisconsin today. They said they found my MCAT scores and said I am a "competitive" candidate and would like to see my academic and supporting credentials. Now I live in Boston MA and never thought about applying that far away (except if it's a top school). Do you guys think its worth it to add that school to my list of 30 schools that I put on my AMCAS application? I have a 34M on the MCAT (2nd trial, the 1st time I got 21M!) and my GPA is very mediocre at 3.5. What do you guys think about those kind of emails?

    For what it's worth, it's a really easy application. No essays.
