    Have you ever wanted to know what the average MCAT stats are on SDN? Well, now you can. If you've taken the MCAT at any point, vote for your score. If you've taken the test more than once, you should vote for your most recent score.

    You totally had me laughing my ass off at that one!!! seriiously though you guys crack me up!!!


    I can't believe you actually made the poll. As per prediction, I think 34 is a good guess I suppose. Or do you think it will be more skewed to the right?? muahahahahahaha

    I hereby delegate the job of calculating the official SDN MCAT mean and SD to Gujudoc. Guju, I expect your report to be on my desk by Monday. ;)

    A tip for when you do it, though Guju - throw out the outliers. The "3" is for sure a fake. That would be nearly as hard to pull off as a 45!

    You guys are freaking awesome! *LOL*

    I'm guessing 35 (what can I say, I'm an optimist!), and I have to agree that the 3 and the two 45s have to be fake.

    Yeah, but with that score of 3, it averages those people to 31. So it's all good...

    Those graphs made me feel better...instilling my belief that you all are freaks of nature (especially if that is a picture of you Williams F1).

    I'm thinking that these scores are 90% untrustable. The low scorers inflated and the high scorers may have deflated (or inflated more) based on what they believed they should have earned. I would certainly take them with a grain of salt.
