How high would my mcat score have to be if i wanted to get into 'any' medschool in northeast(and my residency is ny)? In addition to my mcat, i can bring a sub-par gpa and an all-around failure to "play the game". I.e. i suspect i'll get only 1 or 2 good recommendations, and my essays will not be professionally edited, and my clinical experience will suck, and so on. So might a score of 35 get me placed somewhere, or something like 40 would be required? The only thing, i dont think i interview badly(i dont think people find me to be unpleasant or anything), so it's more about what it takes to get several interviews?
