    Yea I know we might be using this Poll feature a little too much lately, but it's a great way to gather information even more anonymously.

    ANYWAY, WHAT'D YOU GET ON THE MCAT? I hope some don't take offense, but I want to restrict the Poll to those that have recieved at least one interview offer. This will serve two functions: satisfy our curiousities and see where we are relative to others, and give those waiting for an interview a better feel of the range of MCATs those getting interviews have.
     
  2. Thread continues after this sponsor message. SDN Members do not see this ad.

  3. interesting results, but i don't see how much they tell. an interesting idea would be to correllate number of interviews with mcat scores.

About the data thus far, it shows a pretty good distribution.

    Everyone really should include a "just looking" choice or something similar b/c what if you want to look but can't vote?

    For those that can't vote, please fight the urge of inputing a random score to view the results. Once the poll activity becomes static, I'll cut and paste the results.

I think it shows that your chances of getting an interview drop off sharply as your score dips below 30 or the high 20s. Above 30 the data mimics the score distribution of the MCAT as a whole, but below 28 it doees not.

    Hmmm...guess you can just press "results"? It threw me off that it said you couldn't see the results w/o voting but I think you can.

    There should be another poll based on # of people who get each score--otherwise, this might just be showing the MCAT score of everyone on this board <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />
