Just wondering what you guys think are the schools that don't put too much weight on the PAT?

The vast majority of them don't weigh the PAT as high as other sections.

Your two most important sections far and away are reading comp and biology. Do well on those and average on the others and you are in!

If you check out Barron's Guide to Medical & Dental Schools, some schools put far more emphasis on PAT than others but in general, I don't think it's much a factor.

If you want to do really good on PAT, just do the practice problems (3-4 different sets of problems) and follow the instructions/strategies on how to do well in your book. You should be fine. I did that and scored 22 (96.8 Percentile). It works.

Academic is far more important than PAT.
