UTHSCSA provides the actual formula they use for the objective part of applicant evaluation, so I thought I'd post it here & ask whether anyone else knows of a specific formula that other schools use.

DAT-A, I think, is what is mostly called the AA, or academic average.

There's a total of 1000 points available in the objective part, and at an interview you can get up to 500 more points, and apparently that's how they decide.

Seems kinda heartless when you just look at it numberwise, doesn't it?

Anyone else know of other secret (or not so secret (the one above is directly from the UTHSCSA website)) formulas?

**[science GPA x DAT-A Score/30 x 4 + Overall GPA] x 50 = Overall Score**DAT-A, I think, is what is mostly called the AA, or academic average.
