    AACOMAS did release data for the 2016 entering class for applicants with different GPA's and MCAT scores (new and old). They were not cross tabulated by GPA vs MCAT. At the lower end of GPA (2.8 to 3.2) 650 of 3,500 applicants matriculated. For the old MCAT in the 20 to 24 range, 1,065 of 3,500 applicants matriculated. For the new MCAT in the 495 to 500 range, 863 of 2,772 applicants matriculated. Presumably, those with these lower MCAT scores who were admitted had good a GPA. Those with the lower GPA admitted probably had good MCAT scores.
