    Less than a 32 and I wouldn't even bother applying.

    Let's be serious here. Papa is a little off, in my opinion, but not all that far.

    If you look in the MSAR, only considering MCAT, the point at which an applicant's chances break 50% is between a 28 and a 29. 28 and below fewer than 50% get in; 29 and above more than 50% get in.

    femto-

    listen, if you're already applying, i don't think it's worth it to stress out about the scores! have faith in yourself and you'll do fine... :cool:


    (i think that's what papa smurf was trying to say in his own little way....)

    Not necessarily. I wouldn't worry about it. Tons of people get in with below a 28. Just not as many as get in with above a 28, that's all.

    I've known many people with scores under 25 (both URM and non-URM) who have gotten into med school. I even know of a MD/PhD student who got a 19. I still don't know how the hell he got in, but I'm happy for him.

    peace
