    This is good news. I'm somewhat encouraged. I mean for example NYMC shows an average of 30. But it is supposedly a notorious "backup school", i.e., a lot of mid-upper 30's also apply there and are accepted but don't matriculate...

      do you really think that there are school with ave mcat below 30? i sure hope so but that would mean that they routinely take people with like 27+.

      A lot of the state schools and a few of the private ones do have average MCAT scores around 28 or 29. (Not the UCs of ourse :laugh: )

        Do the math. Many 35-37's apply to mid/low-tier schools as backups. They get accepted, but end up going to a "higher tier" school. If the average acceptant had a 30 mcat - driven up by the 35-37's - the average matriculant has to be lower.

          that makes real good sense. so we should assume that the MCAT scores in the MSAR are probally about 1-3 points higher than the acutal MCAT scores of matriculated students? This is for schools outside the top 20 im assuming
