    Just curious...anyone with sub-25 MCAT's scoring well on the USMLE step 1???

    Also, what is the highest USMLE score possible, and what is generally considered to be a 'good' score?

    Thanks for any responses

    The average step one score is 215 for US students. I made in the teens on both act and mcat and made well above 215 on step one. Don't worry about mcat scores, just study hard in basic sciences.

    If so, how do you get into med school with those scores ????
    BTW, this is not a flame, just curious about what you meant.
