I am a little confused about what constitutes a good MCAT score. I am from NC and applied to Wake Forest, UNC and ECU. I made sure to check the averages at all schools and the highest of all three was of course, WFU which was around 31 (10.3 on each section). Now what I don't understand is why alot of people on these boards seem to be bummed if they get like a 30 or a 29. I mean, WFU is a really good med school right? So if you are right there with the average at WFU then you should be a little above most state schools. I just got my scores and had a 31 (12V 10B 9P) and was really pleased since that is about avg at WFU. Now I know WF isn't John Hopkins but still. Basically what I would like to know is, are these averages the schools are showing bogus? I mean an avg. of 10 or so on each section, that means people are getting in with 9's, possibly 8's on each section. So if you had a 27 you still have a decent chance. So why are so many people worried? Just wondering if I should start fretting over only having a 31.
