huseyin said:My point is for MSTP you can have average scores(3.75,35) and a very strong research background and you can be more competetive than (4.000, 39) one summer research background.

huseyin said:I meant average scores for a competetive program. I am not claiming that anyone below these can not get in but generally cutoffs are around that.
Well, a "cutoff beyond a certain point" is still a cutoff. And who's to say if a cutoff deserves to be at an MCAT of 29 vs. 30? Cutoffs are a way of life for many MSTPs and it continues in residency selection.abeanatrice said:When will people start to understand that there really aren't cutoffs once you get beyond a certain point???
