I know the number of schools that you apply to varies with your state of residence. For example, California has the highest number of applications per person....averaging 20 schools each. My friends have 26 on their list right now. It can get so expensive!

Note that MCAT score and GPA isn't everything, but alot of other factors are taken into account when you apply (extracirriculars, letters of recommendation, race, gender, etc...).
If you're a URM, or "Under-represented Minority", you will not need numbers as high as a non-URM to enter med school. It also seems that if you're female the numbers you need are slightly lower. If you're not an under-represented minority (read: white or especially asian), you have to have the highest numbers when applying.Originally posted by silver_eyes
