I don't really know... but
Yes, I think you still have a shot, if your GPA is decent and your EC's are good. That means you got a 13 and a 14 or something like that. That's very impressive.
Not likely unless your GPA is stellar...and your ECs sound fairly standard, but nothing special, and that will hurt you at the top 10 schools...
Take your shots, but balance out your apps with plenty of schools that fall outside of the Top 25 or so...
Awesome! Although, aside from her 9 in VR she had a BOMB-DIGGITY list of EC's!!!
lol. shemarty's mdapps
There is an exception to every typical situation, if one person w/a 9 VR was accepted at multiple top tier schools, that person may be the exception.
What are the 10-90 percentile ranges for MCAT section scores for the schools that you want to go to, as posted in the MSAR? I'd consider that a fair reality check for the schools where you'll be competitive. Note these ranges are for all accepted applicants; presumably those 13/13/13 applicants are accepted to multiple top programs. But if the 10 percentile for WashU is a 12 in VR, chances of being accepted with a 9? Probably not so good, although it can't hurt to try provided you can afford it.
Agree w/posters above, shoot for however many top 10 programs you can afford, a handful of mid-level schools, AND a handful of "safeties" that you'd actually attend if every other school turned you down.
