Hey all. I'm asking for both COMLEX I and USMLE I.

I know COMLEX I passing is roughly 410, mean is 500 with a SD of about 80. So a "good" score would be 580+, am I right?

USMLE I passing is 182 or so, but what is the mean and SD?

What is considered a "good" score?

ie: 30 MCAT is a "good" score

The USMLE has been averaging around 217. Not sure about the SD.

A good score is above this mark. A strong score is one SD above (~235+). An outstanding score is above 250.

The SD is around 21-23. I would consider a "good" score to be 235+, since that puts you in the upper 25% or so. A "very good" score, IMHO would be 245+.
