    I heard when taking KAPLAN that the verbal section is the best indicator for USMLE scores. For this reason adcoms weigh the MCAT verbal score very highly if not the highest. Does that mean 11 and above only draws attention, or is below that still regarded higher than good science scores?

    "Draws attention?" I'm not sure what you mean. Yes, the verbal is the most important to adcoms, but also take a look at their averages...verbal is almost always the lowest score. Now perhaps they consider a 13-15, a 13, but I'm not sure there are enough people with that score to pull down the averages enough. So in summary, a 10 can still look quite good.
