Different sources provide vastly different numbers. Any insight would be great!

Really depends on the type of school you're trying to attend (plus the other aspects of your application)

Of course. But just a general benchmark. I feel like 32 was the benchmark on the old exam. Thoughts?

I guess I would say an 85th+ percentile score (whatever that is on the current scale) is solid for essentially every program except perhaps the most top tier and some of the MD/PhD programs assuming the rest of your application is strong.

thanks for your input!

also, do you think it is true that the psych section score carries less weight than the other three with adcoms?
