    I thought I already posted this, but I don't see it anywhere on the board. I know that no-one wants to hear about the numbers game, but right now the only thing stopping me from submitting my AMCAS is my mcats. I wanted to know if there was anyone from suny upstate who heard about below average MCAT scores that got accepted. I have a competitive GPA, great clinical experience, extra-curriculars, and great letters of rec.
    ANyone please! I am a new york state resident, and I really want to go UpState. Are there any inspirational stories out there!?

  3. i know pple with a 25, a 26 and a 28 who got into UCLA, John Hopkins, and Colubmia...

    according to MSAR, the average for upstate is

    around 26 to 27...upstate is syracuse right?

    so I mean around 26 should cover you?! unless you got something below 20? then you definiately have to take it again

    I am posting because I want this topic to stay on top, and for someone to answer my question. Scoffing and saying
    is not what I care to see.

    I think the average is about a 28. Not sure. I'm a first year but I haven't asked people about their MCAT score ;). I think its taboo by now. But if you think you can get an interview at Upstate then why not? Esp if your letters, gpa, etc can make you competetive.
     
  7. AAAH like NO! They are white...I know at least 16 people with MCATS below 30 who got in not only into medical school but TOP ****......of that 6 of them were jewish, I dont know, is that considered a minority? those six were only for Yale and Einstein...the other 10, got acceptances because they were top notch in every way except mcat..... :D Funny, I know 7 people who are reapplying whose MCATs were above a 36....goes to show, the MCAT means nothing....

    I heard Columbia's RANGE not average is 26 to 41 ;) so don't give up people :D
     
  8. ok, let me be the first to break the taboo...so guardian, what was YOUR MCAT score :D ....
