    Did any of you have below the following stats:

    MCAT Bio: 9
    MCAT PS: 11
    MCAT VR: 11
    MCAT Writing: R

    GPA Science: 3.8
    GPA Nonscience: 3.7

    I'm just asking because I havent heard from them and I know they screen for secondaries.

    Have I been screened out already?

    My GPA's are lower than yours and I just took the MCAT for the first time yesterday. I received Pitt's secondary on 8/16. Their letter, thanking me for submitting a paper copy of AMCAS, was dated 8/3 but postmarked 8/13. The transmissison date to them on my AMCAS app is 8/1. I submitted 7/25 and have not been processed yet. I seriously doubt you would be screened out with those stats!

    Baylor21, I sent Pitt a copy of my AMCAS on 8/6 and just received their seconday on 8/18. My MCAT score is also a 31, and a gpa well below yours. Hang in there, it may take time.

    Got Pitt's secondary last week. I've got a much lower GPA than you, so I don't think you were screened out.

    Who does screen? Could someone please start a thread with a list of schools that do?

    i've talked to their admissions people, and they said that the screening numbers were "much lower than averages" - i could tell specific numbers weren't forthcoming, but you should be fine for sure.

    take care man


    PS: can you drop me a private message re: interview at UTMB?? Thx

    It took like two weeks to get my secondary from Pitt, I was starting to get worried as well. I think they're just busy sending out lots of them.

    I haven't seen another school that's screening applications yet out of the 22 I applied to...I wish they would! I would rather not fill out a secondary for a school that already knows they're not interested. :)
    (Like the Vanderbilt or Yale secondaries for example...)

    If it makes you feel better, I had the IDENTICAL stats as you last year and I got an interview there. My AMCAS primary was in at the end of July.

    (I should add that I'm not a reapplicant, in case you were wondering why I was reading the pre-allopathic forum. The topic just interested me.)
