I'm not sure I saw an ACT under 30 or an SAT under 2000 get an interview back when I screened applications.Yes. The test scores are the only way to standardize performance across all candidates. Everyone has varying levels of difficulty depending on their high school and college, and the SAT/ACT is the objective measure.
If I was you I would not apply. I think in previous threads there was a screener who said if your ACT/SAT was not in the 98%+ it would not even make it and be a donation. Although you seem to be on a great track for med school in general!Hey guys I am posting my stats and I just wanted to know if I have a shot or no?

Anything else that I should include?
When I applied it was literally just logging into the website (so for me I did the ACT) and downloading the pdf score report from the website. I then uploaded it to the FlexMed application. This was/ should be the same for the SAT (but it may have changed due to recent changes overall although I can't imagine accessing the pdf/online version to be any different).So do you know how to get or make an unofficial score report? Sorry, I don't know how to do this
Yes you're fine!I feel like I read somewhere that you can submit 3-5 recs but it only mentions 3 on the actual website. Does anyone know if we can actually submit more than 3? I messed up and send requests to 4 people and it won't let me cancel one so I'm confused...
No, it certainly won't negatively affect you. They just get alot of applicants mostly from the Ivy institutions given it's more well advertised at those schools (Went to a public school so it certainly doesn't disadvantage you if you go elsewhere).Is it true there is an ivy bias for interviews. I go to a small private university that is ranked 190 nationally. Will this negativley affect me?
there were three essay prompts, basically they ask about: an accomplishment, a disappointment, and then the ole classic why flexmed?
