Originally posted by Ninjaboy I think it depends on the range of your scores. I have heard that a lot of schools give automatic rejections to anything below a 6. So a 27 with a 9,9,9 is a lot better than a 6,12,11.
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.
