    Thought this article in the current of Science is of interest to us all as I know there has been a lot of debate about these things on this forum. This author seems to believe there is a definite correlation between standardized test scores and graduate/medical school performance. Here is a link to the article...http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/full/315/5815/1080

    Now, I am partly colorblind, but think the chart says that the MCAT correlates strongly with Step 1 performance and a little less so with first year grades.

    Interesting. I wonder why that is. Normally people argue the reverse finding.

    Interesting, Poeple almost always argue that standardized testing favors the non-minority
