    mcat scores aren't really related to gpa in any concrete and consistent way. read through these posts. you'll see a lot of 3.5-4.0 people with **** scores and people with 3.0 and 35-40. people who are good at standardized tests will score better than those with similar backgrounds and bad test skills. neither number really says anything about "intelligence" (whatever that is). there are just too many other factors that affect both of these numbers.

    Thanks. I've just heard that sometimes when there is an inconsistency, the schools tend to look more at MCAT scores. I was just wondering what I needed to get so there wouldn't be a big inconsistency.
