    My first two TPR practice tests, I got 12's on my sciences and 10's on my verbal. Is this score (33-35) good enough coupled with 3.9+ GPA good enough for Top 30 schools?

    Sorry, TPR scores don't count. You'll need to take AAMC's MCAT. :laugh:

    Try to chill. If you manage a 33+ with your 3.9 GPA, scores will be the last thing keeping you out of a top 30 school.

    i dont think you have a shot at a top 30 school. You need at least a 4.0 and a 45 to get a decent shot. sorry

    do you really need someone to validate this for you? if you are a pre med with these scores i am sure you are smart so why the hell are you asking such a stupid question. :confused:

    33 - 35 on the real thing would put you in a great position; don't start the planning yet though.

    yeah the question is mildly irritating..unless you just didnt know any better...which i doubt...

    you do make a valid point that most asians and indians(yea i know we're asians also) at many schools are competing against each other and thus usually have to be slightly more competative than the avg white applicant and a hell of a lot more competative than URM's...

    **** if they let all of us in we'd be half the medical population
