In contrast to law schools, medical school admissions don't appear to hinge so much on one's MCAT score. For example, I know of students with 3.1 GPAs getting into Columbia and U Chicago Law Schools with 177+ LSAT scores. I've never heard of anyone doing the same with those schools' respective medical schools. Are there any exceptions? For example, could a 3.3 with a 42 MCAT assure anyone serious considerations from MCAT heavy schools like Washington U or NYU?
